Christmas can be complicated.

Parties, gifts, and family tensions dominate the season. So maybe it's time we explore what Advent, Christmas, and Epiphany are really about.

The Messy Church series provides resources to help your church bring together people of all ages and stages of faith, allowing them to experience a creative and fun-filled Christian community. Messy Christmas offers your church a tool to create a unique, come-as-you-are experience built on

  • creativity—allowing space for all to play and create
  • celebration—worshiping God and his redeeming work in Jesus
  • hospitality—sharing a meal where all are welcome

These three once-a-month sessions include Christmas prayers, global action suggestions, games and competitions, Christmas food crafts, and many other ideas to experience joy during this time of the year.

This season, give your community the gift of a messy church!
