The Tenpenny Villages Benefice of Alresford, Elmstead and Frating with Thorrington

Messy Church meets on the third Friday of each month  at 4.30 pm.  It begins with crafts and activities in The Hub connected to the theme of the day, usually including a food activity of some sort, and can always be relied on to provide the opportunity to ‘get messy’! 

After that we move into the main church space for songs with actions, flags, or sometimes both, an interactive story to think about and just a short time to be quiet and say a prayer.  We then sit down, adults and children together, round big tables for tea.  It is surprising how well children do eat in company!
