Messy Church


What is Messy Church?

 Messy Church is for everyone- regardless of age.

It is a completely informal style of church built around creativity, celebration and hospitality.

Messy Church will have a different theme each month but will always include a range of activities -

crafts, food, games, discussion, singing and stories.   

COGS Messy Church is returning to the building...

Join us for our next Messy Church service 

Sunday 12th December

This December join us as we celebrate God with us, Jesus the best gift of all.

Hospitality is a big part of Messy Church at COGS and we love enjoying tea together. This month we will provide a party tea followed by cake and mince pies.

November's Messy Church was all about asking God for help' through crafts, games and songs we prayed for our own needs; those of family and friends; our villages and homes and our World. This was the final one on our prayer series, previously we have chatted with God, caught His answers, thought of things to be thankful for, investigated what it means to say sorry, forgive others and receive forgiveness.
