Messy Church

The Grove Methodist Church welcomes all families to Messy Church every second Sunday of the month at 4.00pm in the Chapelgate Hall, at the back of the Church.

Through bible stories, food, creativity and a very warm welcome from The Grove Messy Church team, families are encouraged to reflect about God and to celebrate life with joy.
From 4.00pm to 5.30pm, there are songs to be sung, stories to be listened to, activities to be enjoyed and food to be shared.

The next meetings are on Sunday 12th February and Sunday 12th March. And a special Easter Extravaganza at 4.00pm on Saturday 8th April!
