What is Messy Church?
Messy Church was started in England by Lucy Moore at her church in Cowplain near Portsmouth in 2004 as a way of being ‘church’ for families, especially for those not part of a church. The first Messy Church in Canada was launched in April 2007 at St. George’s Georgetown ON and quickly followed by others across the country. Glen Morris United has had Messy Church since 2013. Messy Churches are found across Canada in a wide range of denominations in urban and rural communities, all focused on building a loving and caring community that is welcoming and great fun!
