St Edmund’s church in Taverham is hosting the festival until Wednesday, May 30 featuring more than 30 scenes from the old and new testaments knitted by members of the church.

Organiser Stella Noons,77, from Taverham said: “We want people to learn about the life of Jesus and how he can change people’s lives and different situations through his role as a teacher, healer, friend and the way he changes people and things.

“We are hoping to have a lot of families with children visit so we have left out storybooks that they can read and learn about Jesus.”

The backgrounds of the displays have been painted by members of the churches art group.
