URC Isle of Man


Through out the year we have a regular, small, Sunday School during morning service, with Family Services at intervals throughout the year.  Lessons use the Roots plan, and tend to include making and doing things.

This is almost everyone who was involved, although we seem to have lost one small shepherd and his sheep by this point.

Messy Church

We hold regular Messy Church sessions on a Saturday afternoon -  Dates for the whole year are usually on the What's on page.

For those who don't know much about Messy Church, here are some pictures from  Messy Christmas 2023 We made Christmas cards, Christmas Angels, and decorations - all to take home.

 Messy 2023 was busy!

Our youngest participants were Edie and Xander -

And then we had the story of The Grumpy Owl and the Joy of Christmas - here are some of the families listening to the story and watching the pictures on the screens.  After our story and a song there were also copies of the book of the story and a small hand-made gift for all the children, then there was some rather festive food for everyone to share.

Our Messy Church began at Christmas 2010.  We celebrated our 10th birthday a little late due to lockdowns - but here is a picture of that celebration at our first Messy Church in 2021



Although it feels as if it was quite a while ago, this is just to remember that we tried to keep in touch with our families during the lockdown periods of the pandemic.  For Easter 2021 we sent out a small pack, including a book, an Easter card, chocolate and the things needed for a basic Easter craft, to both our Sunday school families and some of the Messy Church families who asked to join in.  This is the video made to go with the craft - 

Safeguarding.  The Church Elder with responsibility for Safeguarding is Mrs. Voirrey Johnson.
