St Helen’s Church is excited to be launching Messy Church in 2018. Messy Church is for all ages; we use hands-on activities to explore Bible stories and hope you can join us… The service happens on a Saturday and begins with breakfast at 9:30am, the whole event is finished by 11:30am.
17th February / 14th July / 20th October
What is Messy Church?
is a way of being church for families involving fun
is a church, not a craft club, that helps people encounter Jesus as Lord and Saviour
is found across the world
values are about being Christ-centred, for all ages, based on creativity, hospitality and celebration
is part of The Bible Reading Fellowship which believes, with the historic churches, in one God, who is Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
St Helen’s Church are keen to grow in the knowledge and love of God… so we have conversations about faith, Jesus and the Bible. This helps us to understand each other better and to have an open and honest discussion about faith matters.
In Lent we will be running two courses… a daytime session on Wednesdays with the catchy title, “Grown-Up Conversation in a Toddler friendly environment…” which sort of does what is says on the tin.
(Wed 21st for 5 weeks, 10:30am to 11:30am)
Our second session, also on a Wednesday but in the evening (7:30pm to 9pm) is based on book 6 of the Pilgrim Course. We’ve found this material sparks interesting conversation. Book 6 explores the Eucharist.

The Lord is my strength and my might,
and he has become my salvation;
this is my God, and I will praise him,
my father’s God, and I will exalt him. (Exodus 15:2)
The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is addressing some of the social issues facing humanity today, poverty and hospitality, slavery and justice, human freedom and dignity – we are reaching out to God that violence may be overcome. Join us during the week to ask for God’s redeeming grace to renew the world.
“In your steadfast love you led the people whom you redeemed;
you guided them by your strength to your holy abode.” Exodus 15:13
