Muddy Church


What Muddy Church is....


Muddy Church is a place for people to wander and wonder. Muddy Church is a fun and engaging place, enjoying creation, nature and being together.


Muddy Church is a community of churches, groups and people who are looking for ways of connecting with their local community and God.  It is not just about being in a rural, forest or woodland area but finding the treasures within our communities that offer people a space to gather and connect. 


Muddy Church is based around the idea that everyone brings something - it offers places for listening and sharing, acceptance and wondering and requires openness to a community of people all able to see God and to share their lives.

Muddy Church is not just for Christians - it offers a space where whole families can come together, friends can meet up, those alone can walk with others and people are invited to share their questions and lives.

Muddy Church does not come with set structures, regulations or formats. It is based on the idea that each community is different and will need a unique look and approach.  There are spaces of sharing ideas, good practice and support through  being a part of this community.

The approach of Muddy Church is of sharing faith and the basis of this is a God who has Created and is creating and is present all around us.  A God who has invited us into our communities and to be a part of what is happening within them.
