Green Messy Church

Green Messy Church

Messy Church…

  • is a way of being church for families involving fun
  • is a church, not a craft club, that helps people encounter Jesus as Lord and Saviour
  • is found across the world – and 2 Messy Churches in Filey! (Methodist Church on the 2nd Saturday of the month and at St John’s on 4th Saturday of the month)
  • values are about being Christ-centred, for all ages, based on creativity, hospitality and celebration


At St John’s we decided to go GREEN and make Messy Church as eco-friendly as we could by using recycled and natural materials wherever possible.  We aim to provide an opportunity for people of all ages to come together and through hospitality, friendship, and informal worship enjoy exploring faith and being church.


Typically we start in church with a song or two, a story and setting the scene of our theme for the service, then going to do a variety of crafts and even games.  We finish the afternoon with a meal together.
