Fol­low­ing the Minions to church

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SCOOP SCHOOL -

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.
