An unnamed Christian group has set up an encampment in a Norfolk village where its members plan to stay for the next month to "share their faith in Christ" with locals.

Its members say the group has no name, but it "belongs to God".

They are camping in a field off Lily Lane, Aldeby, near Beccles.

David Delaney, who is Irish and in his sixties, has travelled the country as a volunteer to spread Jesus's messages for more 30 years.

He said "anyone is welcome" at the camp.

Mr Delaney said: "We are here in this lovely and quaint Norfolk village to preach the gospels of Jesus Christ.

"We have the ultimate aim to encourage people to think about God, have a relationship with God and strengthen their faith in God.

"With so much misery in the world, conflict, pain and suffering, it is important to remember and live by the teachings of Jesus - and anyone is welcome to visit us."

The group held its first talk in a large tent at the site on Friday, July 21.

Talks are taking place on Tuesday and Friday evenings, and there is also a Sunday afternoon service.

The group has the landowner's permission to be there - but if they operate for more than 28 days, it will require planning permission.

Mr Delaney said: "We have thoroughly enjoyed our first week here and are enjoying the tranquillity of the countryside.

"Seeing deer, birds and lots of other wildlife here we get to appreciate God's wonderful creations.

"While we are able to, we will keep camp here and continue spreading the message of Jesus."

Another member of the group is 91-year-old Arthur Leeks.

Mr Leeks said he had spent 50 years spreading God's message in South America.

He said: "In 1963 I first went to the Falklands, where I was for six years, before 42 years in Argentina, one year in Chile and one in Paraguay.

"The values of Jesus's teaching is how I have always lived and I want to share this way to live with other people."
