Here are the activities we uploaded for Messy Church at Home on 18th July....

Saturday 18th July is Messy Church at Home Day! 

This month we are thinking about journeys. Sometimes we go on long journeys - maybe to go on holiday or visit people who live a long way away. Sometimes we go on short journeys - maybe to school, or to the park.


Some people go on special journeys, to help them to learn more about God, and how much God loves them. These journeys have a special name - pilgrimages - and the people who go on them are called pilgrims.

On this page you will find everything you need to do your very own journeys and pilgrimages Messy Church at Home. Have fun!

First up, we suggest you read through this page. This gives you the outline of what you will need, and guides you through running your own Messy Church at Home.

We know that you won't have much craft material left after all these weeks of lockdown, so everything can be made using basics like colours, paper and glue, and stuff from your recycling box. See here for the list.

All the activities, with the instructions and any templates you need, are here.......
