Sparkling lights and festive music filled the church at Wisbech St Mary when a Christmas fayre and tree festival was held.
The event raised more than £1,130 towards ongoing church restoration work.
Churchwarden Richard Gilbert said: “Big thanks must go to everybody who worked so hard as a team to stage this, the result was a very successful event.
“Alongside all of this we had a well attended carol service with 100 people enjoying traditional carols.”
The Christmas fayre offered visitors home made food, craft, refreshments, raffles, bric a brac and tombola.
It is the second year the church has held the tree festival which attracted colourful and creative entries from schools and local community groups.
Christmas services at Wisbech St Mary are:
• Midnight mass is at 11.30pm.
• Christmas Day Holy Communion is at 11am.
• New Year’s Eve there will be a joint church service at 10.30am.
