Holy Communion

Every first Wednesday of the month, there is a short Act of Worship (about 25 - 30 minutes) during which we share Holy Communion.  This is held in the Lounge at Trinity.  You are all invited to share with us at this special time which may be more convenient for some to come and worship God.

"Dazzling Disciples"


Genesis 15: 1 - 6 "Look up at the sky and count the stars - if indeed you can count them"







Sunday 12th January - Our January session was a great team effort, in which we were all dazzling disciples!  It was good to have some old friends join us amongst the 35 members of our Messy Church community, children and grown-ups alike!









On Sunday 8th December we had a very special service when we told the story of God's love for us as we built the Christingle Orange.  It was a lovely afternoon with our Messy Church families and Trinity families enjoying one another's company. ages 3 to 96!



Creation - The World in 7 Days? - Genesis 1: 1 - 27

Sunday 10th November - 4:00pm - 6:00pm

Garden of Eden

We explored the creation story this month, one of the most challenging themes we've done at Messy Church. 

The Fish of the Sea

  Colouring In







The story in Genesis contains the truth that there is a purpose behind creation, order brought from chaos in the beginning.  All creation is God's work and needs to be valued. 

Questions and Answers  Maps

Humanity (us!) has a responsibility to be stewards of God's creation.  After the Fall, Jesus comes to give us a new beginning.  As we did exciting activities exploring Light & Darkness - Earth, Sea & Sky - Sun, Moon & Stars - Fish, Birds, Animals & People - we can share and learn together, whatever our age!
