Full Product Description

  • This book explores how hospitality is a vital trait to sharing God's word
  • The perfect book for growing your church's outreach

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. 

Messy Hospitality by Lucy Moore was published by BRF (The Bible Reading Fellowship) in April 2016 and is our 7425th best seller. The ISBN for Messy Hospitality is 9780857464156.

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.
