YOUNG people from a town’s church used thousands of Lego bricks to build a model of Bethlehem to bring the Christmas story to life.

They created a film featuring a mixture of stop frame animation and creative video angles to be played on a big screen at services and shared on social media.

Worshippers at Trinity Methodist Church and Community Hub, Clitheroe, spent their Saturdays during December to create ‘The Bricktivity’ which has reached 15,000 people and been viewed 5,000 times.

It features images of over 75 model nativity scenes loaned by congregation members.

Organiser Harriet Roberts said: “During the four Saturdays of Advent we offered a Lego construction zone, free craft activities and coffee and cake. This is the first time we have done anything like this.”
