St Augustine’s and Glendermott parishes to celebrate ‘Messy Church’
Church is about to get messy for two local Church of Ireland city parishes, and its all part of the plan.
St Augustine’s and Glendermott parishes are joining to run ‘Messy Church’ - a more informal way of enjoying church services.
The first ‘Messy Church’ takes place this coming Sunday afternoon in Glendermott Parish Hall at 3.30pm.
The plan is to run it on the second Sunday of every month.
Messy Church is a growing phenomenon as churches work to engage with people who may not feel comfortable with a typical church service.
It provides an informal environment to experience worship through coming together, making things together, eating together and celebrating together.

Rev Pat Storey, Rector of St Augustine’s, describes Messy Church as “church, but not as we know it!
“Messy Church is a way of being in church for families and others based around welcome, crafts and art, celebration and eating together”.
She continued: “Messy Church is a time to chill, chat, create, celebrate and eat, and it’s all free.
“It is Church for those who find it difficult to cope with traditional Sunday church services. It describes us all as no one is perfect and we all live messy lives for many reasons.”
Messy Church will take place in Glendermott Parish Hall on Sunday, February 10, at 3.30pm. All are welcome.
Every child or family needs to be accompanied by a responsible adult.
