Toddlers and test tubes: Messy Church does science at CRE

Painting with Messy Church

Simple experiments helping children, parents and carers enjoy science and find faith.

That’s Messy Church does Science, part of a major Messy Church conference at CRE 2017.

David Gregory, senior minister at Croxley Green Baptist Church, will lead sessions on all three days of the conference. At Croxley Green, ‘Dr Dave’ helps lead the Messy Science Lab, and he will introduce the project at CRE.

Whether you’re a start up or a seasoned campaigner, you’ll find what you’re looking for at the conference. Messy Church, using hands-on activities to explore Bible stories, is church for people who don’t do church – providing a ‘safe’ space to encounter the Christian faith. Messy Churches meet at times (and sometimes places) that suit people who don’t already belong to a fellowship. It’s all age. And it’s fun.

CRE exhibitor BRF, who resource, support and enable the project, will run three, two-hour conferences on the project, one on each day of CRE 2017, looking at different aspects of the Messy phenomenon.
