There will be plenty of magic when Cliff Park Community Church holds an Easter Sunday afternoon service at Gorleston Pavilion.

Taking part will be Eastern Area Baptist Minister the Rev Nick Lear who is also a magician and member of the Magic Circle.

He will be using his tricks, including one made famous by the escapologist Houdini, to preach the Easter message that Jesus is alive.

Cliff Park Church, which is based at the Junior School and normally meets there each Sunday, holds its annual carol service at the Pavilion each December but this is the first time for several years the church has taken over the theatre for an Easter service.

Music will come from the church worship band led by Lester Bullen.
