A rededication service was held to mark the end of a project to restore a village church.
The 900-year-old St John the Evangelist Church in Ovington, near Watton, has been made into a community hub, thanks to a grant of more than £200,000 from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
The church is now fitted with a kitchen, projectors and screens.
As part of the restoration works, local schools took part in a year-long project to learn more about the church and faith.

John Hardy, project leader, said: 'The greatest thing to come out of this has been the community involvement. Nearly 30 people from a very small community committed themselves to make the schools project work.'
