After outgrowing their pastor's living room, a church congregation is ready to return to worship.
When South Park Church, in Norwich, closed its doors 18 months ago, some of its members continued to gather as a home church at the house of Pastor Stuart Bailey,
Now thanks to the church's former trustees, the group, The Open Door Christian Fellowship, has secured ownership of the empty building in Ramsey Close.
Pastor Bailey said: 'We want to make a real impact. We're a local church and want to share the love and grace of God within this estate.'
Several of the church's rooms have been refurbished by The Norfolk and Suffolk Community Rehabilitation Company: a scheme which allows offenders to carry out unpaid work on local projects.
