The famous St John Triptych painting at St Mary’s Lydiard Tregoze will be on public display from Friday to Sunday, 28-30 July.
It will be available for viewing from 11am-4pm on the Friday, 11am-3pm on the Saturday and 2-4 pm on the Sunday.
A spokesperson for the church said: "We will also be celebrating the 410 anniversary of James I visit to Lydiard Tregoze in July 1613.
"St Mary’s is one of the finest small churches in the country, further described as a rare example of of an English Renaissance Church.
"There has been over 1,100 years of continual Christian worship on this site up to and including present day, St Mary’s has an amazing interior of treasures from all the centuries."
In October 2018 the National Lottery Heritage Fund awarded a major heritage grant to St Mary’s to restore the historic interiors.
The main focus was the conservation of the extensive and nationally important Medieval wall paintings, identified by the Church of England as one of the 100 art works currently most in need of conservation in their 100 Church Treasures Appeal.
The conservation works started in November 2018, continuing though 2019, with completion of the Medieval wall paintings by the end of September 2020 and final works by December 2021.
