Volunteers at a Salvation Army church in Warrington have knitted 12 of the most famous scenes in the Bible - amounting to over 70 feet of knitting.
It took them ten months to knit them all before the unveiling today at the building on Academy Street, with 380 figures alone knitted.
The Crucifixion is the biggest knitted scene, amounting to almost ten foot of knitting and including 65 individual figures.
The scenes have brought dozens of different people in the local community together for weekly conversation and knitting sessions and a calendar has been made chronicling the pieces to fundraise for the church's various programmes, such as a breakfast club for the homeless and providing presents for deprived children on Christmas Day.
Marjorie Samuel, who spearheaded the idea, said: "We were keen to go into a high level of detail so for the Wedding at Cana there are individual flowers, and grapes, all knitted.
"In the nativity scene we were keen to create a flock of sheep so knitted 60 of them.
"It's been a real community effort."
