St Barnabas Church Purley


The Revd Chris Thomson, Priest in Charge of St Barnabas Purley and All Saints Kenley (also Hayes and Beaumont School Governor) has excitedly launched Messy Church with a fantastic team at St Barnabas Church.

It is a monthly Wednesday event.  Messy Church is a chance for families to meet as a community for friendship, fun and gentle spiritual exploration.  Messy Church involves lots of fun craft activities, celebration, a meal and naturally a chance for the numerous children and parents to make many friends.  Suggested donation is £2 per family.  If you would like to pop along please do register by contacting our Parish Office (020 8660 3251), or simply turn up and enjoy a warm welcome and a good cup of coffee.  In the meantime if you want to find out more please watch the clip below. 

Please be aware that your children are your responsibility at Messy Church.
