We’ve not been able to hold a ‘proper’ Messy church since our last one in January – so we have decided to kick off the school summer holidays by doing Messy Church @ Home via Zoom.

The details are on the poster – click the picture below.

To get the Zoom link, email Rev Phil









4 tbsp self-raising flour
4 tbsp caster sugar
2 tbsp cocoa powder
1 medium egg
3 tbsp milk
3 tbsp vegetable oil or sunflower oil
a few drops of vanilla essence or other essence (orange or peppermint work well)
2 tbsp chocolate chips, nuts, or raisins (optional)


  1. Add 4 tbsp self-raising flour, 4 tbsp caster sugar and 2 tbsp cocoa powder to the largest mug you have (to stop it overflowing in the microwave) and mix.
  2. Add 1 medium egg and mix in as much as you can, but don’t worry if there’s still dry mix left.
  3. Add the 3 tbsp milk, 3 tbsp vegetable or sunflower oil and a few drops of vanilla essence and mix until smooth, before adding 2 tbsp chocolate chips, nuts, or raisins, if using, and mix again.
  4. Centre your mug in the middle of the microwave oven and cook on High for 1½ -2 mins, or until it has stopped rising and is firm to the touch.


Craft Activity:
