MESSY church


Messy church

Are you looking for a way to connect to God, but you aren’t sure regular church will fit?  

Do you want to find a safe place where your family can enjoy positive activities and eat dinner together?


Try Messy Church!

Messy Church is an activity and celebration experience for the entire family that meets on the second Tuesday of each month from 5:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. here at WUMC.

We have games, crafts and activities for all ages focused around a different theme each month.  The celebration time includes music, prayer, retelling of a Bible story, followed by a family style dinner.  You’ll go home with new ideas to connect with your family and with God.  There is no cost, no dress code and no age limit.

Messy Church is an all-age worship experience with crafts, activities, Celebration Time and dinner – for all! 

Messy Church Returns!

Have you been missing your Messy Church? When is the last time you hit a pinata, made your own ice cream sundae or sang “Happy Birthday” with 100 or your closest friends? Those good times and many others are returning on Tuesday, August 10 from 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm as we celebrate the relaunch of Messy Church at Williamsburg UMC. In keeping with the events of the summer, our theme is “Messy Olympics!” We are planning an amazing line-up of games and activities guaranteed to be wet, wild and wonderful. (Hint – think water, eggs, Cool Whip, exploding paint balls and more water!) And don’t forget Celebration Time and dinner, too.
