The afternoon event took place in Wrington and was organised by the village’s All Saints’ Church.

Children were able to make craft dolls and guests also enjoyed a range of tasty foods, including different varieties of fruit on sticks, at the session in the Memorial Hall.

Messy church is described as being a form of church worship for children and adults which involves creativity, celebration and hospitality.

It is primarily aimed at people who do not already attend another type of church service.
