GUIDES threw balls of wool around a church to create a giant spider's web to show how people are linked around the world.
The activity was part of the Thinking Day Service held in Felixstowe.
St John's Church in Orwell Road was packed for the event with guides, brownies and rainbows and their leaders from all over the resort and surrounding area taking part.
The day marks the joint birthday of the founder and the world chief guide, Lord and Lady Baden-Powell.

The theme for the worldwide guide movement this year was “stop the spread of AIDS, malaria and other diseases” - linked to the guides' global action theme, “Girls say 'Together we can change our world'”, which was launched as part of the centenary year.
As well as focussing on the theme, it is also a time when guides all over the world think about each other, and how many guiding friends they have in many different countries.
