Heidi the donkey attended a service at Holy Trinity Church in Nailsea.

Heidi led the Palm Sunday procession through the church's new community garden, before heading into the church.

It is the second year Heidi has visited to mark the occasion.

Heidi also paid a visit to the children's church at Christ Church last week for the Easter family service.

Palm Sunday is a Christian festival the Sunday before Easter to celebrate Jesus' triumphant entry into Jerusalem on the back of a donkey.

Holy Trinity Church, in Church Lane, is holding an Easter service in the shopping precinct on Good Friday at 11.30am, followed by a sunrise service at Backwell Lake at 6am and an all-age service at 10.45am on Sunday morning.
