Dagnall Street Baptist Church is hosting its ‘Messy Church’ event on Saturday, December 1 with the help of Ark Farm, who bring farm animals into schools, children’s centres and care homes.

Families are invited to experience the bustle and chaos of the stable in the Nativity with some sheep, a donkey, chickens, geese, goats, and a Labrador to keep them in check.

After meeting and petting the animals, visitors can pop inside the church for a complementary bacon sandwich, tea or coffee and a selection of crafts and games.

Community minister Jonathan Fillis said: “We want to bring a bit of the mess of that very first Christmas to St Albans city centre with an event for the whole family to enjoy. A warm invite is extended to all between 10.30am and 12.30pm. We hope to see you there.”
