A Weston church celebrated its 60th anniversary on Saturday.
St Barnabas Church, in Westbury Crescent in the Coronation estate, opened in 1958.
More than 100 people took part in the celebration, which saw past ministers and the congregation reunited after many years.
Hot refreshments and cakes were served up, while old newspaper cuttings and news sheets from the past 60 years were on display.
Church captain Andy Falconbridge said: “We had a great turnout throughout the day, it was amazing to see the reactions of people who had not seen some of the previous ministers for quite some time.
“There is a lot of history in this little church, and we also want to highlight what we offer now with our badminton leagues and work with charity Our Way Our Say.”
The church will have a final celebratory lunch on November 24 at 10.30am.
