Hundreds of visitors attended the festival, which supports the various expressions of faith in the region.

The event - which took place at the Forum in Norwich - included a two-day Christian social action exhibition, a full day of music and a celebration service.

MOBO award-winning Christian rap artist GuvnaB, the Norwich Youth for Christ gospel choir and the Dance Off group led a full programme of entertainment on the Millenium Plain on Saturday.

The outside programme also included cage football from the Norfolk Christian Football League, a churches video showreel on the World Cup giant screen and a display from the Norwich branch of the Christian Motorcyclists Association.

Rev Janet Wyer, priest-in-charge of St Peter Mancroft on Millennium Plain, said: “Celebrate Norfolk is God’s love made manifest, it is here and it is real, here for all to see in the exhibitions and stands, in the events, in the displays and activities and in the simple human interactions that will happen over the weekend.”

It is the sixth year that the festival - which aims to showcase the diverse activiites provided by the Christian community in Norfolk - has come to the city.

Celebrate acting director, Danny Doran Smith, said: “Celebrate has gone amazingly well this year and we have had an incredible response from people. The Forum and Millennium Plain have been completely full of people engaging in all the different stands and watching the acts outside.

“It has been a real joy and pleasure to see the church unite and be as one in the city centre as part of Celebrate.”
