The Bible in pictures at Teddington Baptist Church
A London church is encouraging Christians to get creative with the Bible by taking photos that illustrate a verse.
Teddington Baptist Church, an Alliance member, hopes to inspire a new flock of budding photographers as part of its competition.
It forms part of the church's celebrations of Biblefresh, a year-long campaign to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the King James Bible.
Led by the Evangelical Alliance, around 100 Christian organisations are on board with the campaign.
The entries to the Teddington Baptist photo competition - some of which are pictured on this page - are being displayed in an exhibition taking place on Holy Week between 15 and 24 April.
Photos will be judged in categories of 12 and under, 13 to 18-year-olds and over-18s.
Richard Littledale, the church's minister, said: "Photos can be obvious, obscure, humorous or a combination of all three. Since there are more than 31,000 verses in the Bible, there are plenty to choose from.
"The King James Bible is a part of our national heritage and has shaped the language we all speak. This is a great opportunity to get out there with a camera or mobile and get creative."
