Messy Church in Troon


Messy Church

Messy Church is a way of being church for families and others. It is Christ-centred, for all ages, based on creativity, hospitality and celebration.

Messy Church in Troon is an initiative of Troon Churches Together and involves the three Church of Scotland congregations, St Ninian’s Scottish Episcopal Church and Our Lady of the Assumption and St Meddan.

Messy Church welcomes children of any age, with their parents or carers. The team have been delighted to welcome new families and their parents. September’s event saw 26 children plus adults enjoy a session based on The Good Samaritan.

Every area’s Messy Church runs slightly differently but all include Bible teaching, crafts and hospitality.

Messy Church ran very successfully in Troon for many years until Lockdown, and has recently restarted with renewed vigour and some changes to arrangements.

In a change to timing and place, Messy Church now meets 3:30pm to 5:30pm on the first Friday of the month. The group has chosen to meet in St Meddan’s Parish Church (at the corner of Church Street and St Meddan’s Street) due to its proximity to the local schools and availability.

This does not mean it is staffed exclusively from St Meddan’s though! The craft team and catering team are members from all the different churches, and new volunteers are always appreciated. This is an ideal opportunity to meet and work with others in our church family as we move towards a united Troon Church of Scotland. Please do consider helping out. Messy Church meets around 10 times each year and you wouldn’t need to be available for every one.

Please email to find out more.
