Messy Hospitality

Full Product Description

  • Want to unearth the spirit that underpins Messy Church?
  • This book explores how hospitality is a vital trait to share God's word
  • The perfect book for growing you 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 2316th best seller. The ISBN for Messy Hospitality is 9780857464156.

Got a question? No problem! Just click here to ask us about Messy Hospitality.


Is messy hospitality focuses on families meeting together and if so, does it also include material about meeting together as non- generic families, eg, meeting with friends, new friends, etc?





A:Hi Colin, thanks for your query. this title focuses on actives that can be done together, as part of a family and a community - rather than how to meet new people. I hope that answers your question and thanks for using the Q&A Forum, Neil.
