The Church Minshull Community Website

A large congregation turned-up to support Messy Church's 'Wear a Hat Day' on 25th March and over £300 was raised in support of Brain Tumour Research!
The morning was fun-packed starting with hat-making activities and a hat quiz followed by an enlightening talk by John Headon about hat wearing in church. The children enjoyed hearing about 'The Good Samaritan' story and why it's important to be charitable and there was also a lucky dip, raffle, 'photo booth', hat refreshments and a guest appearance from no other than Peppa Pig!
Thank you to everyone who supported Messy's 'Wear a Hat Day', the money raised for Brain Tumour Research will make a huge difference in the fight against this devastating disease.
