Muddy Church is church for all ages which meets in the great outdoors. You won't have to worry about the children fidgeting or making a noise, because having fun in God's wonderful creation is what Muddy church is about. It might be different from church as you think you know it, but Jesus and his disciples did much of their ministry outside. Muddy Church is about engaging and learning from Creation and nature and about how God’s character is shown through them. It’s also about developing relationships with each other and with God.
The Muddy Church programme will be varied according to the seasons of the year and the surroundings in which it gathers, but typically we will meet in a pre-arranged outdoor space with good car parking on a Sunday afternoon. Each meeting will have a theme, around which we might do a craft or construction activity using natural materials, have a linked Bible reading and story, sing together, listen to each other’s thoughts, go on a short discovery walk, and maybe even cook something outdoors! We will finish off with refreshments, so do bring a flask of coffee etc.
Rev Dave Clarke, minister of Malvern Baptist Church, who are setting up this exciting venture, says that the safety of all who attend will remain of paramount importance.
