Messy Church @ COGS

– For All The Family

·         Have you thought about going to church but Sundays just seem to be too busy?

·         Do you feel like you're a taxi service for your children as you take them from one activity to another?

·         Would you like to spend some quality time as a family while learning more about God?

·         Would you like to meet other families and make friends in your area?

·         Then Messy Church is just for you.... !


What is Messy Church?

Messy Church is for people who would like to come to a completely informal style of church. Unlike our kids COGS Club, Messy Church is for EVERYONE, regardless of age, and includes a range of activities - crafts, food, games, discussion, singing and stories. 

When Is It?

DATES FOR 2017: 14th JANUARY / 11th FEBRUARY / 11th MARCH / 8th APRIL / 13th MAY / 10th JUNE / 8th JULY / 9th SEPTEMBER / 14th OCTOBER / 11th NOVEMBER / 9th DECEMBER. All sessions run from 4pm-6pm.

Where is it?

Messy Church happens at the Church Of the Good Shepherd in Four Marks (we call it COGS – see what we did there?!)

What Happens at Messy Church?

·         We start at 4pm and have an hour of craft and games.

·         Once we have finished with the craftwe have about 15 minutes togetherwhere we show off what we have made, sing and listen to a short story.

·         After that, we eat!

·         Messy Church is always finished by 6pm

A Warm Welcome Awaits You!

Remember - It's not a child minding service – it’s not just for kids – it’s for the whole family so all children and young people must be accompanied by a responsible adult.

Messy Church is absolutely free – it’s our gift to your family - although donations are always gratefully received.
