Craft activities included making Roman soldier helmets, looking at story cards, and making iced face-biscuits, three-dimensional fishes and sewn money purses with real money.

A quiz was enjoyed by the older children, as well as games of air hockey.

A spokesperson said: "It is so good to see the children and their families having so much fun in church."
