Messy Church and Communion
14th March 2018
Rejoice, you Anglicans! The long-awaited Messy Church Holy Communion is here!
The Liturgical Commission of the Church of England, together with BRF, is delighted to bring you this very useful and free resource for planning a Eucharist in your Messy Church.
This material has just been released and is a really helpful guide to doing Messy Church Communion in an Anglican setting.
Revd Mark Earey has written the clear introduction that lays out the background to the liturgy. He’s also been a key author, editor and adviser.
There is also a set of Bible themes that Revd Ally Barrett and her students have suggested would be great as themes leading to Holy Communion, in order to do a whole series of Messy Communions with a variety of rich stories to explore the sacrament.
Messy Church want you to help them improve this pack by sending photos, feedback and videos to show how God is at work in this.
Lucy Moore, Messy Church Team Leader comments "Who knows, perhaps the imaginative way the traditional liturgy has been integrated with the shape of Messy Church will be useful for other denominations too or even contexts outside Messy Church. We hope so."
