The newly restored interior of Trinity Methodist Church Kidderminster
Trinity Methodist church has been newly restored and rededicated after an arson attack which destroyed the sanctuary, in December 2008.
The Kidderminster church has used the opportunity to make some changes, and have improved the new sanctuary area.
The Rev Dr Christina Le Moignan officially opened the building, on Saturday, 24 April.
The old burned and blackened cross has been placed in a newly created prayer corner, towards the back of the church.
This area has its own new communion table, and will be used for small mid-week services.
Audio visual aids, which were destroyed in the fire, have now been replaced by a sound system, projectors and screens, which have been built into the design, making them less obtrusive.

Another improvement is an extension to the entrance foyer and a new front door.
It was never clear before which of a number of doors was the main entrance; the new entrance creates a focal entry point and also affords easier access for disabled persons and wheelchairs.
The Reverend Mary Austin, Minister of Trinity Methodist Church, said: "The fire and destruction of our church caused much pain, sorrow and grief.
"The last months have been very busy with planning and preparing for the new church, and our worship over this opening weekend has been a true celebration - a celebration of the bringing of new life out of despair and hopelessness.
"A true sense of renewal, not just of our building, but of our church as a whole, the body of Christ.
"Everyone is so thrilled with the new church, and so excited to be able to worship once more, in the church loved by so many."
