We have been adding more pins to our Messy Church Pinterest Boards and as we begin the autumn season, in the UK, we have been focusing on the Messy Harvest Board in particular. Enjoy the leafy crafts and activities, fruity recipes, Celebration Time ideas, soup and stews recipes and more!

Some themes come around every year so we are always looking for good tried and tested all-age craft activity ideas. Share yours on our website by contacting us.

We hope these ideas get you started!
