Right roy­ally messy time

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

OUT­RA­GEOUS: Be­low, one of the Messy Church lead­ers Sally Cop­per was trans­formed into a Queen. Above, Laura Mack­lin FAM­I­LIES got messy at a church’s fi­nal work­shop of the sum­mer.

Trans­for­ma­tion was the theme at the last Messy Church at Em­manuel Church, in Broad Street, Che­sham, un­til Septem­ber.

Lots of fun was had out­doors in­clud­ing a bouncy castle, wa­ter pis­tol, co­conut shy and football.

In­side there were loads of dif­fer­ent crafts in­clud­ing mask mak­ing, sock pup­pets, face and foot paint­ing.

The chil­dren also dec­o­rated their own cup­cakes and took part in a quiz.

Af­ter the crafts and ac­tiv­i­ties ev­ery­one gath­ered in the main church.

Neil and Sally Cooper, two of the Messy Church lead­ers, were trans­formed into a king and queen caus­ing ‘much hi­lar­ity’ with their out­ra­geous cos­tumes.

There were lively songs and an en­gag­ing ex­pla­na­tion of the bi­ble story of Saul’s trans­for­ma­tion when he met Je­sus, chang­ing from a man who sought out and per­se­cuted Chris­tians into the man who was one of the

FUN: football founders of the early church.

Hot dogs were then en­joyed by all.

The free event will re­turn on Satur­day, Septem­ber 12 at 4pm and ev­ery­one is welcome.
