Messy Discipleship

Slowly and surely moving towards God - together

What happens in a Messy Church is often very different to what happens in traditional church services. But the goal is the same: to make disciples of Jesus.

So just what might discipleship look like in the Messy Church context?

Messy Church discipleship isn’t about numbers. It’s about how we’re moving towards Jesus and becoming like him – as individuals and as a community, no matter how slowly. It’s about how we’re growing in our knowledge of God and in warmth towards him and his people.

And it’s for everyone – leaders included.
