A medieval church in Norwich is undergoing £300,000 worth of refurbishment to make it fit for the 21st century.
Work has already begun on St Stephen’s Church on Rampant Horse Street to install new glass doors and improve its kitchen area.
The money will also pay for the building’s fuse board to be improved for the first time since the 1950s.
The Rev Madeline Light hoped the changes would encourage more people to use the church.
She said new glass doors were being installed on the north and south side of the building to make it look more inviting. Improvements are also being made to the church’s kitchen to include a dishwasher, two coffee machines and increased storage.
Mrs Light said the church’s cafe had grown in popularity and the work was needed to cope with demand.
Previous restoration work saw new toilets and underfloor heating installed.
