Reaching out to families in the community and parish, appealing to young and old alike, celebrating our God-given creativity, Messy Church is the most successful form of Fresh Expressions of Church. Since the first Messy Church started in 2004, there are now more than 2,000 Messy Churches world-wide.
Messy Church offers a Christ-centred experience for all-ages, based on creativity, hospitality and celebration. It is a way of being church for families, especially those on the fringes, involving fun and fellowship.
Several parishes in George, Johannesburg and Cape Town have contextualized Messy Church for their parish and community, and success stories abound. If you are interested in finding out how Messy Church is breathing new life into churches and communities, please contact GtC.
