The display includes scenes from stories such as Noah's Ark, David and Goliath, the nativity and the last supper.

Members of St George's United Reformed Church in Hartlepool have made the colourful creations.

The exhibition was completed in 2012 and has become so popular, churches across the country have asked to host it.

There is now an 18-month waiting list for the display and St James' Church in Winscombe is the only church in the south to host it this year.
