More than 200 hundred people visited on Saturday, December 30 as it hosted its Messy Church event with the help of Ark Farm.

Community minister Jonny Fillis said: "We're delighted that so many people were able to join us and start of this festive season with a really fun reminder of the story behind Christmas.

They have run Messy Church since 2011 providing a fun and welcoming space to hundreds of St Alban's families.
