Milton Methodist Church, in Milton Hill, invited families in to enjoy some free crafts, games and food on Saturday.

The theme of this month's activities was the Bible story of David and Goliath.

Youngsters raced their friends and siblings in the giant obstacle course.

Volunteers also helped the children to make Goliath stick puppets, shepherds' pouches and shields.
