St Nicholas Church in Bradwell is hosting its annual Celebration of Pets service, in which members of the communion will be invited to bring their pets to church with them.

The service, which hasn't been held in recent years, is being revived on April 30 and will give people the opportunity to share their faith with their pets.

The Rev Matthew Price, who is conducting the service, said the event was about 'giving thanks for our pets and all they mean to us.'

He said: 'Pets are often an important part of family life and this is an opportunity to come together as a community and thank God for the important role our pets play in our lives.'

The Celebration of Pets Service starts at 3pm.
