Help more families find their way to church

Messy Church is a way of being church differently. It's bringing hundreds of thousands of people of all ages and backgrounds, many of whom have never set foot in a church before, into a vibrant, fun and faith-filled experience of Church. (Independent research reveals that 61% of Messy Church families wouldn't otherwise be at church.)

This life-changing ministry is also releasing many thousands of ordinary Christians to serve in mission and discipleship, as they volunteer in the 3,800 registered Messy Churches (and many others not yet known to us) across the UK and around the world.

Could you support Messy Church? Each year it costs BRF around £300,000 to run and develop Messy Church: providing training and support, investing in new projects and planning for growth.

Messy Church is part of The Bible Reading Fellowship, a Registered Charity (233280).

Lucy Moore and Jane Leadbetter, supported by the wider BRF staff team, are helping and enabling Messy Churches to be all that they can be. They provide training for local leaders, support for the network of Messy Church Regional Coordinators and advice to the growing international Messy Church movement, as well as shaping the vision for Messy Church as it grows and matures.

The work of our Messy Church team wouldn't be possible without the prayer and financial support of individuals, churches and charitable trusts (more about how we're funded). We're so thankful to those who have supported this work to date.

Can you, or your church, support us with a one-off or regular donation? Thank you.

If you're not able to donate today then do find out how you can support us in prayer.

With a core value of hospitality, belonging is at the heart of what we're trying to do in Messy Church. We want people to be able to say with integrity and excitement, 'This is our church. This is our God. This is our story. This is our family. This is where we feel at home, accepted, known by name and free to take risks because we know that here we are most deeply loved.'

Lucy Moore, Messy Church Team Leader
