Messy Church


What is Messy Church?

 Messy Church is for everyone- regardless of age.

It is a completely informal style of church built around creativity, celebration and hospitality.

Messy Church will have a different theme each month but will always include a range of activities -

crafts, food, games, discussion, singing and stories.   

COGS Messy Church is returning to the building...

Join us for our next Messy Church service 

Sunday 14th November

new time 3.45pm 

This months theme 'asking God for help' is the final one on our prayer series, so far we have chatted with God, caught his answers, thought of things to be thankful for, investigated what it means to say sorry, forgive other and receive forgiveness. Through crafts, games and songs we will be praying for our own needs; those of family and friends; our Villages and homes; our World.
