What is a Messy Church Session?
When you purchase a Messy Church session from Messy Church USA, you get everything you need to plan your Messy Church for the month. In other words, our Messy Church sessions is the curriculum for a themed Messy Church worship experience.
Our goal is to equip you and your team to provide thoughtful, creative activities, an outline for your celebration time, plus reflection for your Messy Church team, table talk ideas and even ways to encourage your families to continue their conversations at home. Every session focuses on a specific Bible passage or story or on a particular theme.
What do you get when you purchase a Messy Church Session?
You will receive links to several downloadable PDF’s that include a themed session plan that include ideas and hot to instructions for 10 or more activities. A local Messy Church typically needs 6-8 activities (smaller Messy Churches need fewer, larger need more) meaning you have flexibility for choosing activities that work best for your context.
We often provide suggestions for adaptations, making sessions even more flexible. We also provide you activity signs with directions and talking points for your table hosts – saving Messy Church leaders significant time!
A typical Messy Church session includes:
- Bible reflection for your Messy Church team
- 10 creative activity ideas with material list, directions, and talking points
- Celebration outline
