Worshippers of all denominations gathered together at a Lowestoft church for a special summer songs of praise.
Organised by Christians Together in Lowestoft and District, around 60 people met at All Saints' and St Margaret's Church in Pakefield.
Christians Together chairman, the Rev Robert Soanes, organised the event, and said: 'It's important for people of different churches to come and sing together and praise God together.
'These events are really important.
'Churches can be in danger of doing their own thing but we are all Christians and it's good to come together - and Christians do like to have a good sing!
