Messy Church is a way of gathering to worship that encourages people, young in years as well as young in heart, to explore your spiritual journey in an open and interactive way.
Life is messy and Messy Church embraces looking for God at the messy edges of our lives. Noisy, and lively are the order of the day
and releasing the energy that comes from enjoying God’s gifts is at the heart of Messy Church. We gather to create ‘treasures’ to take home that reflect the theme and in so doing we honour the Creator within us. We gather for a worship that has lively music and a structure that encourages participation. Our prayers come from the heart and speak to the relationship each of us has with God. We finish by gathering together to enjoy a meal, as a family.

At St. George’s. Messy Church gathers on the second Friday of each month (Sept.-May) at 5:00 pm and ends at 7:00 pm. Children (and that includes anyone with less then 3 digits in their age, although exceptions can be made) are given free rein to express the joy of living and to allow the Spirit that lives in each of us to shine. There is an area set aside for anyone who is interested in a faith discussion, to come together and in an informal conversation interact with fellow seekers.
Come home from work, pick up the kids and come to Messy Church, knowing that there is one less night that you have to cook that week!
