A Torquay church at the heart of the community is planning a major exhibition of Christmas angels.
St Mary Magdalene Church (known as St Mags) has invited schools and community groups from across Torquay to help make the angels.
Hundreds of angels will be suspended in the air inside the church and around the building.
The Heavenly Hosts exhibition will be open to the public from Saturday December 11, alongside a Christmas Fayre and Makers Market.
The church will be inviting people to explore the messages of hope brought by the angels in the Christmas nativity story throughout December in it’s Sunday services, carols and Christingle.
During the summer the church staged the Flight of Light installation, which saw thousands of butterflies suspended inside the building.
Heavenly Hosts organizer, the Rev Emma Dornan, said: “As our previous exhibition, the Flight of Light, migrates for the winter, we join Christians around the world in waiting for the arrival of angels, announcing the Christmas story.”
