Product Description

It's time to get messy again with Lucy Moore's new book, Messy Hospitality.

If you haven't heard of Messy Church before, then listen up. Messy Church is 'a way of being church for families and others based around welcome, crafts and art, celebration and eating together'.

It's Church without the Church-iness.

It's food. It's crafts. It's stories and it's community.

And now it's moved beyond the Church building. Messy Hospitality takes the art of hospitality, of welcoming in people and showing love to families, and brings it into the home. Lucy Moore takes the theology of hospitality and lays in on the tables we sit at when we eat, talk, make stuff, pray, and worship.

Conclusion: Not shutting the door but opening it


In this book Lucy Moore, the pioneer of Messy Church, explores the Christian principle of hospitality. She addresses the theology of hospitality and how it can be expressed at the welcome table, the activity table, the Lord's Table, the meal table, and in the home. Also included is learning from the secular hospitality industry, how to train Messy Church teams in hospitality, and five session plans for Messy Churches. Each section contains audit-style questions for the reader to apply in their own context.
