Messy Church is a new kind of church and held on a day other than Sunday. All ages and all families are welcome to join in on the fun, with lots of crafts, music, storytelling and food!

Two Messy Churches take place within the Parish of South Carleton and occur monthly during the school year. Messy Church at Holy Trinity Metcalfe usually takes place the first Saturday morning of each month. Messy Church on the Move usually takes place the last Wednesday evening of the month and includes a dinner. It is a joint ministry offered and hosted by the Anglican and Presbyterian Churches in Kars, North Gower and Osgoode.

Please see our calendar of events for the next Messy Church! For more information or to register for an upcoming Messy Church please contact us.

A little bit of background on Messy Church: Messy Church started in an Anglican church near Portsmouth, UK, in 2004 and has grown into an international movement operating across a wide range of Christian denominations and traditions. It became part of The Bible Reading Fellowship (BRF) in 2006 with publication of the first Messy Church book by founder Lucy Moore. Messy Church enables people of all ages to belong to Christ together through their local church. It is a way of being church which is particularly suited to families, but welcoming to all. It meets at a time and on a day that suits local families and is particularly aimed at people who have never belonged to a church before.
