Volunteers helped to feed more than 60 people who faced the prospect of spending Christmas Day alone.
The St Mary Magdalene Church in Gorleston held its yearly Christmas Day lunch for people suffering from loneliness and isolation
Those who went along enjoyed a three-course meal cooked by the volunteers and received a Christmas gift.
Reverend Matthew Price said: “We believe that giving is at the heart of the Christmas message.
“One guy is homeless, living in a tent on the beach, and said when he walked into the room it was 'full of joy'. Everyone seemed really happy.
“We also delivered 12 meals to people who were housebound and on their own.
“I just want to say thank you to our amazing volunteer team who put it all together.”
