Fairlie Parish Church was converted into a winter wonderland for the latest instalment of their Messy Church.

The monthly Saturday afternoon get-together has proved to be very popular with families in the local area and is also a different slant on worship bringing the church into the community.

Our photographer visited the church for the Messy Christmas party.

With a range of fun craft, art and design to keep the youngsters occupied followed by a family meal, the format has been a hit in the village.

Never has it been so much fun to get 'messy' in Fairlie!

The next Messy Church event is on Saturday 19 January from 4-6pm.
