Messy Church happens in Tuffley on a monthly basis. Helen McGeoch, Pioneer in Tuffley says, “Messy Church is so good, it’s breaking down barriers that separate church from community and overlapping the two.”
Messy Church reflects a God of joy who wants his people to have life in all its fullness. It offers hospitality and celebration, and is a brilliant way to connect church and community. It can also offer a valuable teaching space alongside play – with resources around the topics such as identity. Talking on the subject of the Real Me resources freely released to theme Messy Church around identity, Helen says, “We don’t always understand who we are when we’re growing up. We think we need to look special, but actually it’s what’s on the inside that matters”.
