An annual fete in North Creake attracted visitors from across the county as people headed to the village to show their support for the local church.
The fete took place at The Glebe, next to St Mary's parish church, on Sunday and it is estimated to have raised in the region of £2,000.
There were numerous activities throughout the day, including jumble, tombola, a human fruit machine, a book stall, a plant stall and a variety of competitions.
The money raised will go towards the £15,000 needed to pay the diocese to cover the church's financial outgoings. It needs to raise a further £9,000 to cover annual running costs.
The church treasurer, Richard Elliot, said: 'It's a very important fund-raising event without which it would be difficult to meet our parish share.'
