Messy Church

Messy Church has gone from strength to strength.  It meets to celebrate the Church’s festivals in St Cadoc’s church. This setting proves to be warm and welcoming to the families who attend.

A very enthusiastic team  lead and coordinate the activities. Planning meetings give the opportunity to share ideas and talents on a wide variety of themes. The team shares a passion and a clear commitment to developing spiritual growth and understanding of the young people in the parish.

At its heart, Messy Church aims to create the opportunity for all ages, children, parents, grandparents and carers to have fun, express their creativity, experience worship and then sit down together to enjoy a meal all within a church context. It is an opportunity to spend quality time together whilst engaging in hands on activities and exploring Bible Stories and value based themes.

The format is very informal and relaxed with no pressure to attend a more formal church service or setting.

Messy Church is a fantastic vehicle of sharing faith with non-church families and we are excited about its growing potential. A shared prayer tree provides a valuable connection between the congregations of Messy Church and St Cadoc’s Church, where it is used in more formal worship.

Our challenge for the future is to ensure Messy Church has the ability to grow and cater for the needs of Key Stage 2 children and teenagers.

St Cadoc’s has a strong connection with the church school in Caerleon. For further details please visit their website
