Emmanuel Baptist Church opened its doors to the community of Falmouth on Sunday for a free fun day packed with activities.

Families were invited into the church to enjoy everything from face painting and temporary tattoos to a bouncy castle, penalty shoot out and inflatable jousting.

The free event was organised in conjunction with Pebbles parent and toddler group, The Garden pre-school and the church's own children's outreach team, to try and bring families out to meet and have fun without having to spend any money.

Emma Munden, the children's dean for the church, said: "It went really well. It was originally planned to be outside but we moved it in because of the weather, and it was much more well attended than last year when it was outside.

"We went through about 130 sticks for the candy floss, so we think in excess of 130 children plus their families attended. There was a massive cross section from across the community.

"The one thing that was a little different was the majority of the things were free, the only things we charged for were cakes and things you could take away, all the activities themselves were free.

"It's just something we do as an outreach to the community: building relationships, bringing people into the church so they can see the facilities we have got. Showing love to the community and offering something free when a lot of families are struggling."
