Lucy Moore was the original pioneer who developed the first Messy Church in their Portsmouth parish in the early 2000’s. With her role in BRF (Bible Reading Fellowship) and the DVD telling the story produced by Fresh Expressions the principles enabled the model to spread and be adapted to a wide range of contexts.
BRF produced resources to help those implementing the principles and created a network of regional facilitators for Messy Church who gathered together to share experience in “Messy Fiesta”.
This has led to literally over a thousand examples in the UK, Europe and North America.
