Messy Church

with Dave Martin

“Church, but not as you know it.”

Christ-centered • All-Ages • Creativity • Hospitality • Celebration

For pastors, youth ministers, Christian educators, worship planners and leaders, and anyone else interested in participatory, intergenerational worship. Come experience a Messy Church service, followed by a presentation about Messy Church led by Dave Martin. Messy Church is for families who have not found other forms of church engaging and who don’t yet belong to a church. It explores a biblical theme through includes hands-on creative experiences, a celebration and a meal. It does not prioritize either the needs of children or adults but intentionally welcomes and provides for all ages.

Dave Martin is a children’s, youth and families’ minister, and a lay reader in the Church of England. He is passionate about intergenerational church and started a mid-week Messy Church service in Radlett, England that quickly grew into a community ministry of 60-100 people.
