DOZENS of Bible characters have been created by local knitters in preparation for an event this autumn.

The knitted people will be used to create scenes from Bible stories in four parish churches:  St Anne, Syston, St Barnabas Warmley, St James Mangotsfield and St Mary’s over the weekend of October 14 and 15.

By then there should be about 400 wool characters.  Some of the scenes and backgrounds will also be knitted. In  2018 the Bible Yarns project will move to  Bristol cathedral.  There will be the chance during the entire month of August to see all of the stories brought together in one place in the Nave Aisles.
