VIDEO Pets In Church

Pupils pets blessed in church service.

Children at Acklington C of E Controlled First School had a morning to remember on 24 October when they all took their pets to St John’s Church to meet each other.

One of the children suggested bringing pets to church during a religious education lesson about Noah and plans were made for a special service to do just that. Pet visitors included Barry the goldfish, Grace the tortoise, Jinx the staffy pup and Poofie the Jack-Russell.

Revd Mike Dent blessed all the pets at the end of the service and each animal was given a special treat for taking part.
