ST John's Church in Largs has been covered in a cascade of poppies to mark 100 years since the end of the First World War.
The symbolic and eye-catching poppy floral waterfall was erected by Largs Fire Brigade on Monday evening in a spectacular tribute.
However the operation nearly came off the rails after the fire crew had to rush off to an emergency call out.
Reverend Jonathan Fleming told the News: "The fire brigade got called away to deal with fireworks in a bin at Largs marina.
"We got there in the end and it is all looking rather special.
"It has all come together. I cannot count how many poppies, staples and hours of labour have gone into this - it is incredible."
All ages in the congregation, as well as Largs Girls' Brigade, played a part knitting the poppies for the display, as well as local craftspeople.
Reverend Fleming added: "We thought given it was such an important centenary to mark the end of the First World War that we thought we should do something very memorable and fitting for the town."
The unique display will adorn the front of the church over the coming weeks.
With various landmarks up and down the country being adorned with poppies, or lit up red like the Largs Pencil, to mark the centenary, St John's Church say they were delighted to get involved.
Rev Fleming added: "It is something which has brought a lot of people together in the town, not only for the creation of the flowers but to prepare and put the poppies in the nets.
"We have connected well over 3,000 poppies onto 20 metres of netting and it has been an incredible effort by a number of church groups.
"Largs Quilters created a whole array of smaller poppies, which we will use for active remembrance and attach one to each of the perspex silhouettes which we will also have on display.
"St John's Church is indebted to everyone who has taken the time or gone to the great effort of preparing poppies of different forms, be it knitted, quilted or crotched.
"It is something which will be very memorable for the town."
A cascade of poppies has also been put on the Largs War Memorial through the efforts of the Largs branch of the Royal British Legion Scotland.
