Pet friendly church
Have you ever thought that it would be nice to bring your pet with you to church each week? Well did you know there is a pet friendly church in London?! Not only does St John’s welcome pets for their weekly service but they also hold a pet blessing every year. This is to mark the feast of St Francis, the patron saint of animals. Each animal gets its own blessing and prayer from the priest. The pet friendly church is St John the Baptist church (Holland Rd, W14 8AH). It is a beautiful grade I listed church dating back to 1868 that looks more like a cathedral than a church. So, not what you would usually expect from a pet friendly church!
