Worshippers will today gather in a boarded-up church.
Windows were smashed at Hunstanton Methodist Church yesterday afternoon.
Police were called to the carrstone building, at the junction of Austin Street and the main King’s Lynn Road, around 5.30pm.
So far, they have not revealed whether any arrests have been made in connection with the incident.
Minister Rev Steven Oliver said: “It’s with the police. The windows have been smashed.
“It wasn’t by youths or anything like that but I don’t really want to say anything right now. I’ve got to see what the police have to say.”
All six of the ground floor windows on the eastern side of the nave have been boarded up overnight.
Beforehand, numerous panes of glass had been smashed in the intricately-leaded ground floor windows.
Built in the mid-1890s, the church hosts a wide range of community groups and activities, as well as Sunday services.
