A UNIQUE interpretation of some of the scripture tales in wool is on show this month.
The Bible Yarns project was the idea of Mary Webb, who attends St Anne’s church in Syston. She has co-ordinated knitters from four churches and beyond to make hundreds of knitted figures and create scenes telling well-known stories.
These will be on display during the weekend of October 14 and 15.
St James Church, Mangotsfield will open its doors on Saturday 10am-4pm and Sunday noon-4pm for the family friendly event. Refreshments and a children’s corner will be available a
At St James Church you will be able to see the story of Jesus’ birth and can then move on to St Barnabas Church in Warmley to see the Creation, great Flood and some of the parables and miracles.  St. Anne’s Church in Syston will have displays from some of the parables and miracles and at St Mary’s Church in Bitton you will be able to view stories relating to the crucifixion and resurrection.
Bible Yarns will move to the Nave Aisles at Bristol Cathedral for the entire month of August 2018 when you will be able to see all the scenes again in one place.
