Research into Messy Churches in Schools in the UK

Published 12th February 2014 by Messy Church

Throughout 2013 the Messy Church Team in the UK has been exploring some of the challenges and advantages of running Messy Churches in schools. Early in the year a questionnaire was sent out to over 50 Messy Churches registered on the website who stated that they met in their local primary or secondary school. In addition, there have been visits to a number of Messy Churches which run in schools in order to talk to leaders, their teams and those who are part of the new congregations. Later in the year a small number of key Messy Church leaders and schools advisers came to a consultation in order to consider the findings and draw up advice and guidelines for those thinking of setting up a Messy Church in a local school.

You can read all the findings on the blog or download them as a PDF.
