St Margaret’s Church in Northam will be paid a visit by Bobby the Donkey at its Christmas Tree Festival.
Bobby will be visiting as part of the 4pm crib service on Christmas Eve, in his fourth guest appearance.
Visitors are encouraged to arrive early, as it will be busy.
The parish church kicked off its Christmas Tree Festival last week.
The interior of the church is decorated with more than 30 real Christmas trees, wreaths and lighting.
