On Sunday 15th September Bayston Hill Methodist Church held its first Pet Service led by Rev James. It was a chance to gather together and give thanks to God for our pets, remember why they are special and how God has blessed us through them. We had several dogs, a 46 year old tortoise called Humphrey and the shed skin of a rose tartantula in memory of a much loved pet! We even had a few stuffed toys which were loved as much as pets and also real lions don't make great pets.

We heard about St Francis and his care for the animals, sang about 'All creatures great and small' and prayed for our pets and those that care for animals, both domestic and wild. The service was finished off with tea and cake and dog treats. We hope to make this a regular event, so spread the word.
