Messy Church

Messy Church

MESSY CHURCH and Messy CRAFT CLUB started at Sutton Methodist Church September 2008 and it's goes from strength to strength. Messy Church- Children and parents/grandparents/carers join together to make crafts related to a bible theme then we have a short service followed by a meal together. Craft Club- Children and parents/grandparents/carers join together making themed crafts then again we have a short service followed by a meal together. We have as much fun as the children their parents/grandparents/carers whilst making a mess and turning it into something wonderful. We try to use as much recyclable material as possible in order to help save our planet. Don't worry if you haven't been yet as we get new people joining us every time so you will not feel out of place if you want to come along for the first time. The CRAFT CLUB and The MESSY CHURCH are open to any age from tiny tots to grandparents and older. Both clubs start at 4pm until 6pm and tea is provided at both events for everyone (inc adults). The fee is £1.50 per child to be paid at the door. We do ask that you kindly make a donation towards the meal at either club in the dish provided. For future dates please see our Facebook page
