A church in a north Norfolk seaside resort is offering free surfing lessons to parishioners in an attempt to get more people on board.

Soul Church's Cromer ministry has announced it will be opening its Surf Misson this summer.

Working in association with the Glide Surf School, free surfing and stand up paddle board lessons are on offer for anyone who wants to have a go.

The church, which previously met at Huckleberries Cafe in Cromer, revealed it has had to find a new meeting place in the town due to its increasing popularity.

It will meet for the first time at Cromer Community Centre on Saturday, April 8.
