The afternoon service, which included four sheep symbolising the shepherds, who were the first to visit baby Jesus, added an extra touch of fun to this year's proceedings.

Everyone had a candle which helper Gilli Galloway said gave the church a magical, atmospheric glow for the service, which included traditional readings re-told in more up-to-date words.
