Get Started with Messy Church

The NC Conference Evangelism & Discipleship Team, in partnership with the Center For Leadership Excellence, is hosting a Day of Learning with Messy Church…

May 2, 2023 @ 9:30 am 3:00 pm

1082 Amelia Church Rd
Clayton, North Carolina 27520
$30 per church (for a team of 2-5)

This day-long training will cover everything your team needs to get started with Messy Church in your community!

During the morning session, we’ll explore the key building blocks of Messy Church – the values and main components. These are the foundations for building any Messy Church. With those basic building blocks, we’ll consider how you can adapt to your contextual needs, and we’ll experience a “mini” Messy Church together. Then, after sharing a meal, we’ll explore how to put the pieces together – from volunteers to publicizing. 

When your team leaves, you will be fully equipped and resourced to start your own Messy Church!

Mini-Grant Opportunity: NC Conference churches who bring a team to this Day of Learning will be eligible to apply for one of ten $500 “mini-grants” to help your congregation start its own Messy Church. Details and an application form will be shared with teams who attend the training on May 2.
