Animals joined the congregation at St Lawrence Church in Wymington during a pets service.
Pets, including a chicken and a horse, were celebrated at the service taken by the Rev Ruth Pyke.
The service on Sunday, June 24, was held as part of an Open Church Sunday in the parish.
Becky Lewis-Stanton, whose daughter Mariella, three, took her horse along, said: “It’s fantastic because it brings all of the community together and it’s really fun for the children.
“It’s a great way of getting the church out into the community.”
