Another messy outing from Lucy Moore, this book follows on from the popular Messy Church, which has sold over 4,500 copies since it was first published in 2006.

The material includes many ideas for practical ways to promote a sense of fellowship and community. The book contains a further fifteen units of fun, food, crafts and mess, with a year’s worth of material that your Messy Church will love.
