Artist Judith James, of Corpusty, is exhibiting 20 icons at St Peter's, which stands on the village's skyline off Holt Road.

During an annual patronal service on Saturday, June 29, she painted another icon while the church was open to visitors.

She said: "I staged an exhibition in Italy last year inside an abbey and was able to use the space to make a great impact. St Peter's is also a large, bright space - just the right setting for a celebration of striking images."

Special plinths were designed for her icons, which feature traditional images.

The exhibition will run until Friday, July 5, and will be open daily from 10am to 4pm, except on Sunday, June 30, when it will open 11am to 7pm.

The church is maintained by the Norfolk Churches Trust.
