St Nicholas' Family Centre
Messy Church is a fresh expression church that welcomes adults and their children (parents, step parents, grandparents and their children, step children, grandchildren) to come and join our Messy Church community.
A typical Messy Church will be Christ centred and all age, with an opportunity to experience creativity, hospitality and celebration. It is usually in the format of learning on a particular theme or bible story through crafts and experiments leading into a celebration with a bible story, songs and prayer and then we share a meal together. Messy church runs on the 3rd Saturday of the month from 16:15 until 18:30, every month apart from August.
Due to Covid Messy Church is currently online. You can request a resource bag to be delivered on the day or just follow the video and gather your own items for the crafts. All of the videos are available to watch via the Yate Parish YouTube channel.
We are tentatively making plans to welcome families back to St Nix when we restart Messy Church face to face on 18 September 8and, of course, we shall follow government and Church of England guidelines. We are expecting to have to limit numbers so it’s likely we will ask families to book in advance - more details to follow once we are a little more clear on how the Covid restrictions will affect us.
We are looking for new team members to help with Messy Church, this could be through crafts, prayer, music, catering team, dining team or general logistical help. all volunteers will need to follow the safer recruitment process and any training will be provided.
