Ready-made Resources


Apologies that craft details are missing from some of the topics.
Tablesigns should give some indication of the types of crafts involved, and the teaching activities are also provided.

(Many thanks to the Dassett Magna Messy Church team for providing these resources.
The craft details are mostly in note form and fail to acknowledge our many sources of inspiration, such as the Messy Church books and a variety of websites.
If we have used one of your ideas without acknowledging it, then please accept our apologies.)
