‘Dr Dave’ all set to mess about at CRE 

David Gregory, senior minister at Croxley Green Baptist Church, will lead sessions exploring faith and science on all three days of the Christian Resources Exhibition (CRE) exhibition in October


Dave Gregory 500 At Croxley Green, ‘Dr Dave’, who will serve as Baptist Union president in 2018-19, helps lead the Messy Science Lab and recently edited a new resource Messy Church Does Science, which shares simple experiments helping children, parents and carers enjoy science and find faith. 

A major Messy Church conference will take at this year's CRE, where Dave will introduce Messy Church does Science.

Using hands-on activities to explore Bible stories, Messy Church is church for people who don’t do church – providing a ‘safe’ space to encounter the Christian faith. CRE exhibitor BRF, who resource, support and enable the project, will run three, two-hour conferences on the project, one on each day of CRE 2017, looking at different aspects of the Messy phenomenon.

Hundreds of tickets for CRE have already been sold – one in five to people attending Baptist churches.
