A Dutch church that held a Harry Potter mass last year is now planning to celebrate a Lord of the Rings mass.
The Rev Jaap Ridderbos says the mass at the Gorechtchurch, in Haren, is meant to appeal to young people.
“Did you know Tolkien was a good Christian all his life?” he asked Groninger internet courant.
He plans to show scenes from the film in church and point out comparisons between Tolkien’s books and the Bible.
