Messy Church Holiday Club 26th October 2021
Last Tuesday, the 24th October, Messy Church Holiday Club was blessed with lovely sunny weather for our sponsored walk along the river bank, made more exciting with a scavenger hunt! We realised on Climate Sunday that though we can’t help people affected by climate change directly, we can raise money to give to people who can help them for us. An enormous thank you to everyone as we have so far raised £140, and there may be more to come. If you would like to donate, please contact Marion on the Messy Church Facebook page phone number to arrange it. All money raised will be sent to Christian Aid for their work in Africa.
Return of Messy Church to the ‘new’ transformed church building
On Sunday 13th June, we welcomed back into the “new” church building five family groups for Messy Church. It was great to once again be able to meet in person, even if socially distanced and of course with the necessary ‘Covid’ precautions. We shared the story of Pentecost, with music and with crafts; and following the service hot food and drinks were prepared and served from the new kitchen. What a lovely morning!
Crib and Christingle service, St Asaph Parish Church: 2020
This popular service was broadcast on www.stasaphcathedral.wales page at 4pm on Christmas Eve. During the 2 weeks prior to this, some 60 “Christingle kits” were made and delivered. Clearly from just some of the photos received, the message of Christmas was received and enjoyed in the safety of our own homes. The service is still available to view if you missed it. Thank you to the staff and children of year 2 at St Asaph VP Infants School, and the other readers for their lovely help with making the service so special.
It is everyones’ hope that we will be able to meet in person again in 2021. Meanwhile, Stay Safe everyone.

Learning and Craft work during Messy Church on Zoom – 17th May
Messy Church Holiday Club ran each morning of Holy Week (26th – 30th May 2018) where more than 50 children had great fun by playing a variety of games, singing, and crafts; making a number of different items to remind them of the stories of Holy Week.
At church this morning (Easter Day), some of the children (and helpers) celebrated by singing their well-practiced song “God’s not dead” to the congregation.
The next Messy Church is at 11.00am on Sunday 06th May.
The next Holiday Club will be at 10.30-12.30 on the Wednesday of school half term week (30th May).
Do come along and join us for these family fun times.
Below are examples of the pictures, decorations and crafts that were made by the children, and some of their best hula-hoop moves!
Messy Church is held at 11.00am on the First Sunday of each month. This is a fun service for all the family, with activities for children of all ages, where we can all learn through play, through games, singing and acting; and yes, it can be messy. Please come dressed for fun.
There are light refreshments which can be enjoyed by all.
Come along; try it.
