Sweaty Church

Some churches around the country have started running a monthly Sweaty church event.  It’s similar to Messy church, with parents/grandparents/carers taking part alongside the children, but games/sport based (rather than crafts). It also includes food and a short time of worship. It is being promoted by Scripture Union

Compared with Messy church – it tends to appeal to slightly older children. It also sometimes appeals to boys and dads and grandads – more than girls, mums, and grandmas.

Some people are running it in schools as an after school club.
