New Messy Regional Coordinator for Australia
Welcome to Richard Turnbull! Richard is your new Messy Regional Coordinator for Newcastle and surrounds in NSW Australia. Richard coordinates a Messy Church at Toronto Anglican Church on Lake Macquarie where his wife Julie is the vicar.
We met both Richard and Julie at the Messy Church International Conference in May.
Richard is our first Regional Coordinator in NSW and we are so pleased to have him join our Messy network.
A Messy weekend camp
A growing number of Messy Churches are daring to take their Messy families away for a weekend. It's proving a great way to deepen friendships made at Messy Church and to help young and old on their discipleship journeys.
Aike Kennett-Brown is our Regional Coordinator in south-east London, working as a Messy pioneer out of St John's, Blackheath. Those of you who were at the Messy Church International Conference in May will have heard her speak briefly about her plans for 'Messy munches' as a way of establishing all-age discipleship groups for her Messy Church families.
Messy Church and sacred space
Ever since the Messy Church International Conference just over a month ago, I have been wondering about something that George Lings said to us. Maybe you were there or have listened to his talks online since.

Welcome Marianne Hellgren who is our new Regional Coordinator for north Sweden! Marianne coordinates a Messy Church in the northern Hortlax region and she works for the Diocese of Lulea. Marianne joins Olle Philipsson (east coast of Sweden) in this growing Regional Coordinator team.
Watch out for more Regional Coordinators joining the network! What a blessing to know that even more registered Messy Churches are being prayed for regularly and supported with love and encouragement.
