We had been praying for a way to have a deeper conversation about Jesus with the many families that we come in contact with in our community through playgroup and other programs. We have trialled Messy Church services this year. Next Sunday will be our eighth and we are having a ball!
When we look back over the 100plus people who have attended, approximately 40% are people who would not normally attend our other church services.
Personally I am so grateful to the Lord for Messy Church because it is one way that the Lord has begun to answer our prayers as we are having meaningful conversations with people about Jesus that we haven't had on the same scale before.
