LOADS of bell-ting Christmas fun was had by folk of all ages at a fayre filled with festive spirit at Greenock's Mount Kirk church.

A very busy Santa had to enlist some help and assistance from the on-hand elf service as excited children packed his grotto.

Meanwhile, parents and grandparents enjoyed Christmas tea in the shadow of the church's tree — accompanied by some tasty treats.

Minister Rev Francis Murphy said: "It was extremely busy throughout the morning and we were very pleased by that.

"Everyone had a great time.

"It truly was a celebration of Christmas for all generations."

Crafty congregation members made ornaments and decorations for sale to raise funds for the kirk.

Meanwhile the Christmas cafe did a roaring trade.

The two-hour event proved very popular and got everyone into the festive spirit.

Rev Murphy said: "It was a great success and everyone left looking forward to the festive season ahead."
