The Benefice of Bentley, Binsted & Froyle Churches
The Benefice of Bentley, Binsted & Froyle Churches

A thriving community of faith across three churches.

 

We're so excited to annouce we are restarting Messy Church! For now we will meet over Zoom once a month. 

 

We'll be crafting, singing and learning from the Bible together in the comfort and safety of our own homes. Don't panic, we'll make sure you know what materials you need in advance and afterwards we will be posting a summary video with the craft and story to go alongside each service on YouTube in case you miss out.

 

This month's theme is BREAD OF LIFE. Join us on the 11th October at 3:30pm.

 

Here's how to prepare for Messy Church -
