Engaging all ages around the big questions of life: faith, the environment and science.

If you are looking for ways to engage people right across the age spectrum in the big questions of Science and Faith, then this event is for you!

The Messy Church movement internationally has been exploring ways to help faith communities engage with the desire to care for our environment and questions of faith. This can be adapted into any context where people of any age want to meet and explore questions of science and faith together.

The program will include hands on opportunities to explore the big questions such as what the bible has to say about the environment and our role in caring for the planet… and more!

Who is Dr Dave Gregory?

Dr Dave Gregory, the Key Messy Church leader and Messy Science Guru has been at the forefront of this experiment in developing hands on ways to use scientific experiments and questioning as a way of opening opportunities to bring their love of the environment into conversation with questions about faith and discipleship.

If you’d to get a foretaste you can find more here.

What is Messy Church Goes Wild?

“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 to be more eco-aware in all we do, both inside and out, as gathered and dispersed church, for the good of the planet.”

What are Messy Adventures?

A resource consisting of twelve units of materials to give the most unconfident leader the tools and confidence to take their Messy Church outdoors. Each unit includes fun activities with a strong scientific focus, questions to discuss, ‘Big Thinking’ provided by scientific experts and suggestions for creative ways of responding in Christian worship with awe, wonder and celebration.
