Youngsters got to grips with the Old Testament at a messy church in Axbridge last weekend.

Children and their families looked at the story of Naaman And The Field Of Leprosy in this month’s messy church, which was held at St John The Baptist in the town’s square.

People were asked to make door hangings and a model which replicates the story of Naaman bathing in the River Jordan to cure his leprosy.

There were also songs, poems, prayers and food to be enjoyed by more than 20 children and their parents and grandparents who attended.

Churchgoer Heather Hawkings said: “The messy church went really well and there was a great turn out.

“This month we are looking at the theme, children in the bible, and this story is important because it was a little girl who fetched the prophet Elijah to help Naaman in the story.”

The next messy church will be on March 17 from 2.30-4pm.
