Pyjama party at church Sunday service raises money for Children in Need
Anyone attending the morning service at Creech St Michael Baptist Church on Sunday (18 Nov) might have been mistaken for thinking they had had walked in on a pyjama party.
In fact it was simply the congregation getting behind BBC Children in Need and the Blue Peter suggestion of being sponsored for wearing your pyjamas out for a day.
'It was an idea from two of the children in the church,' said Pastor Gary Birch. 'They asked if they were allowed to come in their pyjamas and collect for Children in Need.
'We thought it was such a good idea that we suggested not only the children, but the adults might like to do the same, and many of them did.' Wearing their pyjamas, dressing gowns or 'onesies' over their normal clothes, the total collected on Sunday for Children in Need came to over £500.
