Children showed their creative sides while learning about the bible on Saturday.
Worle Baptist Church, in Rawlins Avenue, hosted its first messy church event of the year.
The family fun day saw arts and crafts stalls set up and experiments take place, before families sang songs and ate together.
Messy church is a national scheme designed to make church more accessible to children of all ages.
Church secretary Jo Hopkins said: “The aim is to create an attractive model of church and engage people with the bible.
