About

Three complete Messy Church sessions for Advent, Christmas and Epiphany, together with a wealth of creative activities and crafts to extend the range of excitingly messy activities for your Messy Church. Sections include creative Christmas prayers, global action suggestions, games and competitions, Christmas food crafts and many other ideas to take you on into the New Year.

Get Messy! is a four-monthly subscription resource for Messy Church leaders. Each issue contains four session outlines (one per month), including planning sheets and take-home handouts, together with information on the latest resources and events. It also seeks to encourage and refresh Messy Church leaders by providing monthly Bible studies, a column on taking time to recharge, and a problem page. Other features include a youth column, a day in the life of a Regional Coordinator and stories from Messy Churches around the world.

Messy Church and Christian Aid have enjoyed getting together to produce this Messy Church session based on the work of Christian Aid around the world. You could use it to explore our global Christian faith and to encourage your congregation to look outwards at the great work Christian Aid is doing with families in different countries. The session is about  global justice and action against poverty because of God’s love for all his people rather than fundraising. Enjoy!

For Messy Month 2014, we've decided to celebrate the gift of family in its widest sense - both the messily diverse families who come to Messy Churches, the messy family of the church into which we've been adopted and the messy family that is the community in which we live - locally and globally. So we celebrate the sense of being family - being connected, being significant to others - whether we're single or married, young or old, with or without children, in stable relationships or short term ones.

Messy Month is a chance to celebrate and share all the Messy news and information with your other church congregations, inviting them to be part of the Messy ministry in prayerful, practical and financial ways, and to thank God for all he's doing through our Messy Churches.
