Pirates invaded Honiton Family Church for a week of swashbuckling fun.

The church, which was formerly known as Honiton Baptist Church, held a children’s holiday club last week - transforming the building into their own pirate island.

The children enjoyed plenty of ‘wacky’ games, crafts, jokes and story telling and hearty sing songs.

“It’s gone really well. All the children have really enjoyed it,” says Pastor Luke Mansfield.
