Messy Church Adventures, Caring for the world we live in!
Messy Church Goes Wild is the movement within Messy Church which aims to encourage Messy Churches to meet God outdoors, love the natural world, experience a sense of awe and wonder there and be more eco-aware in all we do, both inside and out, as gathered and dispersed church, for the good of the planet.
As we come to a time we really think about Climate change and how we can tread carefully there are wonderful reflections and practical suggestions from Messy Church on how we live well in God’s world! What I really love is that there is a real encouragement for families to think about and draw or make collages of their favourite creatures (pets, wildlife, insects, even plants and trees) and to express what they learn about God’s character from them!
When time for Prayers and Celebrations this resource has you covered! Everything is all ready for parents and leaders to really enjoy their time with the young people. For those of us leaders, who have safety lists always in the back of our minds every time we go outside (like me). Feel the relief as all sessions of Messy Church goes wild has a risk assessment! So you’ll have your worries put to rest!
This unique collection of wisdom and practical materials covers a range of topics from caring for animals and birds through living as an eco-friendly household to greening up your Messy Church activities and running an online session on Jesus in the wilderness.
