Resourcing churches to reach out to and engage with people of all ages in their communities
Belonging to a vibrant, fun and faith-filled church
Messy Church is a different way of 'being church'. From humble beginnings in a single church in Portsmouth in 2004, Messy Church growth has far surpassed our expectations. There are now almost 4,000 Messy Churches registered on our directory in more than 20 different countries - and that's just the ones we know about. We estimate that over 500,000 people attend a Messy Church each month.
These Messy Churches are supported by us through the four dedicated members of the BRF Messy Church team and over 100 volunteer Regional Coordinators, along with the wider skills and experience of the BRF staff team. We provide Messy Churches and their leaders with training, advice, resources, inspiration and encouragement - helping each Messy Church to be all it can be.
Messy Church is part of BRF's work to support church outreach in the local community.
