Following the Minions to church
THUMBS UP: Messy Church gets the seal of approval from Vivienne and Alex Rayner MINIONS invaded a popular family event at a church recently.
Messy Church returned to Emmanuel Church in Broad Street, Chesham, on Saturday, September 12 following a summer break and it saw ‘Minions’ running amok and trying to cause chaos wherever they went. The theme for this month’s Messy Church was Follow the Leader and attendees explored how the Minions were always looking for someone to follow - but not just anyone – they were looking for the meanest and baddest baddie they could find.
The session started at 4pm with crafts and activities around this theme, including making Minion headdresses, biscuit making and colouring/sticking. There was also the usual bouncy castle, football table and parachute games.
Regular visitor to Messy Church Charlotte Devereux said: “After all that fun, we shared some time singing, quizzing and thinking about who they follow – and how Jesus is the best leader that we could ever find to follow.”
A tea of chicken nuggets, baked beans and the biscuits people made earlier followed.
Mrs Devereux added: “It seems everyone had a great time from the chatter and buzz!”
The next Messy Church will take place on Saturday, October 10 from 4pm to 5.30pm.
The event is free and everyone is welcome.
