Youngsters were able to learn about Christian values in a different way with an event held at Daventry Methodist Church on Friday.
The first messy church of the year at the venue in Lodge Road saw children getting involved in games, stories, crafts, food and art.
It saw children making bird feeders to be hung outside and also making treats for pensioners.
They also did craft activities which encouraged them to accept others despite any differences they had.
Future messy church events will be held on April 24, June 26, September 18 and November 27. Each one is on a Friday and runs from 4.30pm to 6.30pm.
