Messy Church involves creativity

Pentecost is the birthday of the church and St. Saviour’s Anglican Church is planning to celebrate on Wednesday, May 18 from 5 to 7 p.m.

This will be a birthday party. Fifty days after Easter, Christians commemorate the coming of the Holy Spirit to the disciples of Jesus.

Symbols of Pentecost include fire, wind and water and they are being used in Messy Church crafts. Come and make kites, sail boats, and enjoy community, fun and food. Everyone, adults and children, is welcome. There is no charge, although donations are appreciated.

St. Saviour’s has held a number of Messy Church events and they are always great fun. See for yourself.

So what is Messy Church? The movement began in England in 2004 and now has spread worldwide. Messy Church is a form of church for children and adults that involves creativity, celebration and hospitality. It’s for church people and for people who don’t already belong to another form of church. It meets at a time that suits people who don’t already belong to church.

It typically includes a welcome, a creative time to explore the biblical theme through getting messy; a short celebration time involving prayer, song and perhaps a Eucharist; and a sit-down meal together at tables. All elements are for, and should include, people of all ages, adults and children.

It’s all-age. It’s fun. It’s a church for people at all stages of their faith journey and of any age.
