What is Messy Church Goes Wild?
Messy Church Goes Wild is the movement within Messy Church which aims to encourage Messy Churches to meet God outdoors, love the natural world, experience a sense of awe and wonder there and to be more eco-aware in all we do, both inside and out, as gathered and dispersed church, for the good of the planet.
The book at the heart of the movement is now available!Buy the book
Messy Adventures is a project which has been funded by a generous grant from Scientists in Congregations. It is a resource consisting of twelve units of materials to give the most unconfident leader the tools and confidence to take their Messy Church outdoors. Each unit includes fun activities with a strong scientific focus, questions to discuss, ‘Big Thinking’ provided by scientific experts and suggestions for creative ways of responding in Christian worship with awe, wonder and celebration.
This is a collaborative project between Messy Church at BRF, writers, scientists, the diocese of Gloucester and pilot churches across the length and breadth of the UK and is coordinated by the BRF Messy Church team with Dr Dave Gregory.Messy Adventures
Messy Church Outdoors
Many of us are temporarily taking our Messy Churches outdoors to help families and teams feel safer. We’ve created some simple, free suggestions to take the Get Messy! sessions outdoors for a shorter (chillier!), more active session that makes the most of being outside but sticks to the same theme. You’ll still find a much richer vein of ideas, articles and stories in the magazine itself, but we hope these additional outdoor ideas will help tide us over this stage of the pandemic. Enjoy!Messy Church Outdoors
