Service Development Fund Report – Messy Church Tranent

Act Plan Study Do

Tranent Messy Church is supported by the churches in Tranent and based on a now international model of church as a family inclusive opportunity.  It is a free, monthly event (1st Sunday of the month, 4.30-6pm during term-time) for children and their carers to enjoy together.

Each session includes welcome activity, several arts & craft activities at different ability levels, an active activity, action songs, storytelling in various forms using Bible stories, and finishes with a meal for everyone.

All crafts are designed to be easily replicated at home to give parents/carers accessible ideas for play with their child and take into account different learning preferences and sensory experiences.

Each session offers play opportunities, a sit-down meal together and time to spend together in a safe environment.
