Pack a picnic and book your place as Messy Church Goes Wild brings you all the best in intergenerational fun, at the Christian Adventure Centre in Viney Hill, 17 September, 11am to 4pm.

Using mostly the outdoor space at Viney Hill, activities will focus on exploring nature, and what we learn about God from noticing creation.

We want this to be a fun and engaging day for all involved, both families and those engaged in running Messy Churches.  We are showcasing ideas and activities that we hope will inspire churches to try this out in their own locality.  Leaders will have the opportunity to explore how they can try this in their own community, in an optional half-hour leaders’ information session.

Messy Church Goes Wild is the movement within Messy Church which aims to encourage Messy Churches to meet God outdoors, love the natural world, experience a sense of awe and wonder there and be more eco-aware in all we do, both inside and out, as gathered and dispersed church, for the good of the planet. Since the middle of 2021, the Diocese of Gloucester has been in partnership with Messy Church on Messy Church Goes Wild, with several of our churches piloting the new resources before their general release this year.

This is set to be a great event, with all ages welcome. Come as a family, or a Messy Church group with leaders.

Important things to note:

  • Spaces are limited so book now to avoid disappointment.
  • Priority early-bird booking is open to those in the Diocese of Gloucester and the ecumenical partners. From 1 July this booking will open up nationwide. Places will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.

  • Wear outdoor clothes and footwear suitable for the weather on the day.
  • Viney Hill is an open site and the adults you book a place for must remain entirely responsible for the named children that are part of the booking.

We would love for you to join us. Please book your free space here.
