Christ Church held a pets service and asked worshippers to take along their four-legged and feathered friends for a blessing.

Children were also invited to take along a cuddly toy if they did not have a pet.

The friendly animals were well-behaved and worshippers enjoyed meeting the different creatures and giving thanks for their companionship.

The creatures joined the younger members of the congregation during the children's church service.

The church, in Christchurch Close, is no stranger to animal visitors.

Leaders hold a pet service every year to enable families to take along their beloved animals.

Heidi the donkey also visited the church earlier this year to take part in the Palm Sunday celebrations before Easter.
