About this Event

Messy Connections brings together Messy Church teams as well as those interested in launching Messy Church in a four-day conference with Messy Church founders and leaders. The conference will be an interactive, energized, musical, and inspired online gathering that will connect you with other leaders and with your own learning in Messy Church.  

Messy Connections will bring international, national and local Messy Church leaders together in a virtual event. Our leaders include UK guests Lucy Moore (founder of Messy Church), Jill Phipps (International Messy Vintage Coordinator) and Stephen Fischbacher (founder of Fischy Music). Linnea Good will lead a session on Biblical Story-telling, Sandy Brodine will share sessions on Messy Creativity -- how learning styles matter and how all ages can work and learn together. We will explore Messy Science and Messy Church in a Bag with Mark and Jane Hird-Rutter, and how Get Messy Magazine can be adapted as a great resource for Messy Churches with Claire Dawe.  

One of the conference goals is to explore Messy Church as a part of the means of reconciliation with Indigenous peoples. We open with Susie McPherson Derendy leading us in a session on the Story Stick, and later Susie leads us in Bannock Making. With an Indigenous carver we will make sample inukshuks, and then Andrea Gallager-Courteau will tell the story of Turtle Island and we'll explore how faith stories can work together in respect and reconciliation.

There will also be time for you to connect with one another informally to share ideas and experiences including at Idea Exchange on Messy Christmas and Messy Easter.  

This conference will be valuable whether you are new to Messy Church and Messy Vintage and want learning opportunities, or whether you are experienced in these and want deepening opportunities.  

The conference aims to be a connecting point for people and for ministry.  

There is no cost for the Conference.
