Pete Maidment is the Diocesan Youth Adviser for the Diocese of Winchester, and heads up the Messy Church Training in the Diocese. He is part of the core leadership team for the Messy Church that meets at St Wilfrid's Church in Cowplain, where he has gained a reputation for devising some of the more wacky crafts! Pete is married and has two children, who are crazy about Messy Church and see it as their home church. In his spare time Pete is a keen runner and drinks more coffee than is probably good for him. Barry Brand is the families worker at the Parish of Bitterne Church LEP, and runs one of the largest Messy Churches, which regularly gets over 100 people and on two occasions 200! Barry recently took Messy Church over to Namalemba in Uganda who are partnered with Bitterne church and is always thinking of weird and wonderful ideas for Messy crafts or the lunch. Barry is married to Adele and has two children, who also help at Messy Church either on the craft tables or in the band. Barry is also a freelance graphic designer and produces all their Messy posters and advertising. When not at church, Barry enjoys cycling, camping with friends and is a keen cook, who, much to Adele's dismay, uses far more pots than necessary.
