Five months after the worst-ever terrorist attacks in Norway, the grieving process for families who lost loved ones continues.

In the aftermath of the bombing in Oslo, which killed eight and the subsequent massacre of sixty-nine people attending a youth summer camp, the Norwegian church has seen a rise in the number of people attending its services. The BBC's Tom Esslemont has been to Oslo to see how religious faith has been helping people through the crisis.
