Churches across Dereham have unveiled their plans for the Easter weekend.
Christians are set to take part in a walk of witness through the town on Good Friday.
Starting in the Queen Mother's Garden at midday, people from local churches will process behind a cross around the town centre and finish with a service in the Nelson Place precinct.
The walk will symbolise the day Jesus was crucified on the cross.
Earlier in the morning, at 10.30am, there will be a joint town service at the Salvation Army.
On Easter Sunday, Christians will celebrate Jesus' resurrection with a sunrise service at 5.45am on the town's Neatherd Moor.
This will take place at the far car park on the right hand side, past the pond, and will be followed by breakfast at Dereham Baptist Church.
