Messy Church £100 Appeal

Skip the latest blockbuster and help families grow in faith

It’s incredible to think that there are now almost 3,800 Messy Churches in over 20 countries worldwide.

What’s more incredible is that The Bible Reading Fellowship’s (BRF) vast Messy Church network is supported by a dedicated team of just four staff.

Could you support Messy Church for less than the price of a cinema ticket?
