Messy Church started in an Anglican church near Portsmouth, UK, in 2004 and has grown into an international movement operating across a wide range of Christian denominations and traditions. Messy Church began with a simple question asked by a group of leaders in a small community: “How can our small church reach the many families in our community?” And so began a journey of discovery and the birth of Messy Church, shaping worship, learning, and fellowship around the needs of families with children. Today more than 500,000 people worship at a Messy Church experience in over 30 countries.
Messy Church USA has been growing and stretching. Use the map to discover if there is a Messy Church near you. To register your own Messy Church please refer to the Messy Membership details.
