A UNIQUE nativity display is being shown at St Catherine's Church in Litlington.
In conjunction with Steeple Morden Primary School the church have been working to create special scenes to celebrate the birth of Jesus.
And in doing so members of the congregation have donated a variety of nativity crib sets to be displayed in the church.
Donations have come from near and far, with 46 separate displays originating from all over the globe.
There are Christmas corn dolls from Kenya, a handmade set from Bangladesh that has been created entirely from mud, a donation from Argentina and an olive wood set that originates from Bethlehem. There is also a clever creation made from origami.
Organiser Sue Jenkins said: "The displays range from the very simple to the most unique. The idea is for people to realise what Christmas is all about and the most important aspect of Christmas is the birth of Jesus.
