The sun always shines on the righteous!

And it was an amazing first day turn out at the Millport Messy Church at Cumbrae Parish Church recently.

A grand total of 35 adults and children took part in the Messy Easter event.

Reverend Jonathan Fleming said: "A huge thank you to all of the Messy Church team and to all of our visitors.

"We all had a wonderful Easter and look forward to seeing you at our next Messy Church gathering!"

The Messy Church initiative brings young families together in an informal way through arts, crafts and storytelling and sometimes followed by a family meal.

The events have proved popular in West Kilbride and Fairlie for years, and have recently been introduced in both Largs and Millport.
