A church in Sedbergh resembled more of a zoo when it held a pet service.

St Andrew's Parish Church hosted the event, which served as a fundraiser for Animal Rescue Cumbria.

People were invited to bring their beloved pets to the service, which led to dogs, cats and a group of alpacas roaming under the church roof.

A spokesperson for ARC said: "Huge thanks to St Andrew’s Church for the wonderful pet service on Saturday, and for the generosity of the congregation who helped raise much-needed funds to support our animals."

Pet services are designed to remind those taking part of God's blessing through giving them their pets, thanking Him for the gift of animals.

The session also included a speech from guest speaker Nick Gray, who is a retired vet and recently licensed Lay Reader.
