An Ellon church has been decorated with paper doves in the run up to Christmas.
Ellon Parish Church took part in the doves of peace campaign which was organised by The Church of Scotland.
Paper doves of peace are scattered across three prayer trees for all to see.
Individuals, groups and schools have filled inside each of the doves with a message of remembrance or one of hope.
Some of the doves will be sent to be displayed in the Church of Scotland general assembly while others will be kept at the parish to be used under a cross at Easter time on Easter Sunday.
