A community will come together to celebrate the end of a project to restore its 900-year-old church.
On Sunday, St John the Evangelist Church in Ovington, near Watton, will be rededicated by the Bishop of King's Lynn, the Rt Revd Jonathan Meyrick.
The church secured a grant of more than £200,000 from the Heritage Lottery Fund to carry out repair works to make the building a community hub.
As part of the grant, a project was set up to engage with pupils from seven local schools where they took part in activities and experiences at the church.
