Messy Church – an all age messy event where kids come first!

On the second, third and fourth Sundays of the month from 10.30am, we gather for Messy Church at Adamstown! Messy Church is a playful, fun, all-age messy event with lots of singing, dancing, craft, stories and snacks.

Messy Church meets at 10.30am in the Church Memorial Hall. Messy Church PLUS on the third Sunday of the month includes some input for parents as well as sharing lunch together. 

Come along, play, create, imagine, talk, sing, learn and just be together!

Our Messy Church music is led by the talented singer/songwriter and musician Heather Price. Heather has written original songs for us to sing together each week. They feature songs about love, mess and togetherness. You can listen to the ‘I am Loved’ album here.
