Messy Church Science

Our family focus means we can inspire scientists of the future. We can teach them some basic scientific skills and influence their attitudes and expectations towards science and faith. We can help train a generation to see no dichotomy between science and faith, but rather how the two can fruitfully exist side by side.

BRF’s Messy Church has been embraced wholeheartedly by many local churches and through it we have the opportunity, as well as the creative imagination and energy, to bring science into the way we ‘do church’. We can help the subject become an accepted and expected part of worship and learning; and a means by which we can meet God and learn to love the natural world.

Messy churches provide creative sessions for children and families to learn about the Christian faith. The grant will be used to develop materials to help Messy Church leaders use science to explore aspects of the Christian faith and demonstrate that faith and science are complementary. The project aims to provide Messy Churches with 100 safe and simple scientific activities to try in church and to demonstrate that anyone can get involved in science. Videos will be made to promote the work.
