Barnstaple Baptist Church

Connecting people to Jesus Christ

   Messy church 1

Welcome to Messy Church ! We host this event on the first Saturday of each month in term time from 9.30am - 12 noon.

What it IS:

It's a time for families to come together for a time of creativity and fun ! Typically, there will be a breakfast provided on arrival with additional refreshments available throughout the morning.

The sessions will include a time of creative play through craft, exploring a Bible theme, and probably getting a bit messy !

Towards the conclusion, there will also be a short celebratory time in the church sanctuary that will include a Bible story based on the days' theme, some simple songs and a short prayer.

Summing up:
It's a time for families to come together to be, to create, to eat and to celebrate God.


What it is NOT:

It isn't just for people who go to church ! It is for people of all faiths, or none.

It isn't just for families ! - All are welcome - single, widowed, childless, divorced.


All our Messy Church helpers are volunteers who have been legally cleared to work with children - so Messy Church is a safe place.


There is a small charge on arrival to cover the cost of refreshments


If you have any questions please do not hesitate to 
contact us

We hope to see you soon !
