Messiness is next to Godliness in an innovative church-based activity in Moville.

The Inishowen Methodist Churches and Moville Group of Church of Ireland Parishes held their latest Messy Church event in the Wee Hall in Culdaff.

According to Reverend Alison Gallagher, Messy Church, was a fun-filled way for children and adults to explore the Christian message and make things together.

She added: “Messy Church is based on creativity, hospitality and celebration. Each event includes a Bible Story with drama; singing; games; arts and crafts; and finishes with refreshments.”

“Jenny McKeague from Culdaff who regularly brings her two boys to Messy Church said: “It is heartening to see the children enjoy themselves so much while learning Bible stories and life lessons in an age appropriate way.”

The Inishowen Methodist Churches and Church of Ireland (Diocese of Derry and Raphoe) currently host Messy Church.

Alison said: “It is open to families from all backgrounds and traditions. It is primarily aimed at children from 0-12 years accompanied by one or more responsible adults. “Messy Church happens every two months and alternates between the Methodist Hall in Moville and the Wee Hall in Culdaff.

“It has been running successfully for more than a year and will hopefully become a monthly event. Look out for news of the next Messy Church event, which will have a harvest theme.,” said Alison.
