Welcome to our Messy Church at Home page

Although sadly we can’t meet for Messy Church at the moment, there are still lots of creative and fun things we can do to help us to learn more about God and to talk to him.

There are some great ideas for you here - and you can still take part in our previous activities by clicking on the links at the bottom of the page.


Saturday 20th February is Messy Church at Home Day! 



The Bible is full of surprises! Full of people who we might not expect to be there! Over the next few Messy Church sessions we'll be thinking about some of these people, and what they can show us about being friends of God.

The first of our Tales of the Unexpected is about King David. He was an ordinary shepherd boy, until God chose him to become king. He had all sorts of adventures, but grew up to become a great leader. And the many-times-great-grandfather of Jesus.

So this month we're making things which will help us to tell the story of David's life. Here's what you will need - resources list.

And this is what we're making this time......

Suggested timings:

Before you begin: Find all the resources you need.

10am*: Gather together everyone who is taking part, and say "Welcome to Messy Church" to each other.

10 - 11am: Do your making and activities.  

from 11am: If you're not joining us for Zoom tea-and-toast, watch the Celebration on YouTube here, and then join in with the songs: 


Lovely Jubbly

(Sorry about the adverts!)

from 11:10am: Make your drinks and toast and log in to Zoom tea-and-toast to share what you have made, and join in with the celebration together.  

(The secure link is in the email sent to Messy Church families, or available from the Parish Office  admin@shirleyparish.co.uk  or 0121 745 8896)

11:30am: Say "Thank you for coming to Messy Church" and help to tidy up

(*Of course, you can do all, or some, of Messy Church at whatever time suits you. But sadly that probably mean you won't be able to join in Zoom tea-and-toast 😟)

Our next Saturday Messy Church at Home will be on March 20th. We look forward to seeing you then!
