A practical exploration of the Christian principle of hospitality from the founder of Messy Church In Messy Hospitality Lucy Moore demonstrates how hospitality can be practised in Messy Church and other church contexts to promote mission and faith formation, addressing the theology of hospitality and how it can be expressed at the welcome table, the activity table, the Lord's Table, the meal table, and in the home. Also included are insights from the secular hospitality industry, how to train Messy Church teams in hospitality, audit-style questions for the reader to apply in their own context, and five complete session outlines for Messy Churches.

What is hospitality? It is not just about the refreshments we serve nor the way we welcome people at the door. It is about being generously open-hearted - as God is with us. Whilst written primarily for the Messy Church movement (it includes 5 Messy Church sessions), this book has much to say to traditional Sunday and mid-week congregations. This is not an 'add-on' for what we think church is about but something that should permeate our congregations, our planning, what we offer and how we view what we are about. Don't read this book unless you are willing to be challenged in your thinking and your practice! A fabulous book that forces us to consider the outrageous hospitality of God - and then to join in!
