Messy Church

Sorry we've been away for a while! Sadly, Messy Church in person is still postponed due to Coronavirus but we're checking on when we can return. Meanwhile, you can still be creative and still say your prayers! We've left a few tips below:


Try to be quiet and still for at least one minute.

(You can do it! Ask someone to time you if you need to)

In your head tell God some of the things you've been thinking about.

Maybe something or someone:

*you're worried about. 

*you're excited about. 

*you know who needs help.

*God can help you to help with?


Finish by trying The Lord's Prayer with some actions:

Finish off with the Allelu song (complete with funky beat!)

Maybe see if the grown ups at home have got something for tea?! (Don't forget the Grace song... 'de ne ne ne (*click click*)...')

You can send us some pictures of what you've been working on via the Facebook page: 'The Wigston Benefice' or to


Here's what we usually get up to:

Messy Church is a monthly session aimed at families who want to learn about God through activities such as crafts, games and singing. It's aimed mainly at babies and children under eleven years old, but older siblings/cousins/friends are welcome too. All children must be accompanied by a responsible adult (e.g. mum, dad, grandparent, carer)

Whilst the hall is being tidied up, we do go into church as well before headig back for dinner!

Each session is built around a different Bible story - previous sessions include Who is Jesus?PrayerNoah's ArkCreationEaster

The sessions are free to everyone - why not come and find out more about Jesus together?
