Messy Church is held once a month in the Village Hall. Numbers fluctuate as the children progress through school.
We have a welcoming and friendly church community and run a Harvest Supper, Christmas Fayre, Winter Lunch, and Summer Fayre.
Other events in the summer are Ride & Stride, and our Garden Safari. The “Four Charities”, a Joint charity with Brede supports four overseas charities, The Deaf in Tanzania, Papua New Guinea Church Partnership, The Fistula Foundation and Sight Savers.
Charities and Clubs and other groups are generally shared with our neighbours at Brede. Groups such as the Mother's Union, Women's Institute, a Luncheon club, Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Brownies are all based there. Details of all events are published in the monthly Parish Magazine which covers the two parishes, Brede and Udimore.
ST MARY'S CHURCH FLOWERS
St Mary's Church flower arranging team is happy to welcome anyone, experienced or beginner, to join the regular church flower arranging team. For more information contact Nadia Florence-Marshall HERE.
In over 80 countries of the world, more than 4 million Mothers' Union members do all they can - through volunteering, giving and prayer - to support families, to promote marriage and family life, and to reach out within their communities to people who are isolated, in trouble or in need of help.
Building, strengthening, supporting, encouraging and healing relationships lie at the very heart of Mothers' Union.
We're not all mothers - or even all women! We are a commmunity of people inspired by Christ to bring a humanitarian response to the needs of families around us.
If you want to ....
help build a world where dignity, love and respect define relationships,
do all you can to eradicate the inequalities brought about by poverety, ignorance of rights and lack of opportunity,
meet like-minded people and have fun at the same time
come and join us at one of our monthly meetings.
We meet the first Wednesday of every month at 2.30pm and have a different topic at each meeting.
Here in the benefice with Udimore and Beckley and Peasmarsh. Messy church normally meets on the the First Tuesday of each month in the Udimore Community Hall.
This afternoon get together is for adults and children together in a fun filled Christian community outside Sunday worship. It is described as a way of being church for people who don't do traditional church, for whatever reason. It is a church for all ages but essentially adults are welcome with a child in tow or vice versa.
In fact this is key to Messy Church - children do not come along alone & adults must bringg a child or young person if they wish to take part. There are crafts and activites, celebration & a shared meal.
Why not come and join?
