One of Messy Church and Bible Reading Fellowship’s strengths is an commitment to partnership. When we work together it strengthens the church! CPO have been working with BRF for many years often as the ones behind the scenes, equipping Messy Churches to tell communities what’s going on, and developing all kinds of exciting resources to make it a little bit easier. Russ Bravo, director of content and engagement, says “Messy church has been one of the real success stories of the UK church in recent years. It’s given churches a way to connect with families. We also work with BRF on the Woman Alive conference.”
Everything is printed to order at CPO’s factory in Worthing, and sent out within a day or two. Tim from the printing team says “Day to day I’m doing lots of various bits and pieces, so data mailings, t-shirts, hoodies, wide format banners, printing off the posters and such like. We do a Fairtrade range too. It’s been amazing seeing the growth of Messy Church over many years.”
If you’ve never been to cpo.org.uk/messy do have a browse. Some churches fill mugs with treats as a thank you gift, or give them to church members to encourage prayer. Cards are a great way to tell families and young people you are thinking of them. Fairtrade, t-shirts, and all our clothing, have recently dropped in price. The polo shirts are a flattering fit, and are a great way to encourage new team members.
