Messy Church happens on the first Sunday of the month in our church – you can’t have missed the signs as you come into town. It doesn’t just happen in North Berwick though.
Messy Church looks and feels very different from Sunday morning church. Its DNA is made up of four elements: hospitality, creativity, all age and celebration. The four combine in different ways in each different place. So no two are the same. We have four teams to provide these elements to run Messy Church each month.
Why do we do this?
Because we love Jesus and want everyone else to have the chance to find out how amazing He is, in a fun atmosphere where everyone can play, create, worship and eat together.
Who do I talk to?
The teams have different leaders, so check the team pages to see who to talk to for each team. However, any of the Messy Church team leaders will be happy to talk to you about what we are looking for.
The teams are:
- Messy Worship team
- As its name implies, Messy Church includes a half hour segment of informal worship in the sanctuary before the meal. Click here to see what the Messy Worship team does
- Messy craft team
- This team prepares the craft sessions, and works with children to develop their craft skills. Click here to learn more about the Messy Craft team.
- Messy kitchen team
- The kitchen team prepare a meal to be shared by the teams and the children and their parents who attend Messy Church. We don't mean that the team leave the kitchen messy... the Messy Angels wouldn't like that! Click here to learn more about the Messy Kitchen team.
- Messy Angels team
- We know that not everyone is comfortable doing craft or teaching, or even cooking, but there is a need for the unsung heros (we call them Messy Angels) who are prepared to beaver away in the background, doing the washing up, tidying, vacuuming, moving the the furniture and all the jobs which are needed to support the "front line" folk working directly with the children and adults who come to Messy Church.
