Animal service at Apuldram church

ALL Creatures Great and Small might be an appropriate hymn for a church service with a difference this weekend.

St Mary The Virgin church, in Apuldram Lane South, Apuldram, will host an animal thanks-giving service on Sunday (September 30).

The service, starting at 3pm, will be presided over by the Rev Moira Wickens.

“Everyone is welcome to bring their pets,” said Helen Cooke, from the church. “All pets are welcome.”

Last year’s visitors to the service included a guinea pig, dogs and a miniature pony.
