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 openess to a community of people all able to see God and to share their lives.
Muddy Church is about discipleship – a journey of faith, growing in understanding of God, developing and being encouraged into deeper relationship with God through informal reflection, natural liturgy and accompanying.

Muddy Church in the Stormont area developed from our existing Messy Church collaboration with our friends in nearby Stormont Presbyterian Church during the Covid-19 pandemic when we weren’t able to meet together indoors.
We are blessed to have the beautifully wooded Stormont Estate on our doorsteps which provides a natural link, and opportunity for walking and exploring, between our two sets of church buildings.
