“Messy Christmas” – Christmas Survival Kit

For a lot of people Christmas is one of the 1-2 times a year they consider going to church – it was what they did when they were little so it’s just become part of what they do, or it seems “the right thing to do”. Regardless of their motivation, it provides an excellent time to get them along to church.


“Messy Christmas” is a twist on the usual ‘A Very Merry Christmas’. In Messy Christmas we explore Christmas in 3 parts across the 3 Christmas events (Carols, Christmas Eve Sunday and Christmas Day) – Messy PEOPLE (focus on Shepherds), Messy PLACE (focus on no guest room) and Messy PLAN (focus on manger). The baby wrapped in cloths in the manger ends up as a man wrapped in cloths after his death on the cross…God’s true King enters the mess to clean us and feed us – by his Spirit.
