St Andrew's Church to host interactive exhibition in Colyton
PUBLISHED: 17:30 20 June 2017
A major interactive exhibition will recreate important locations in the life of Jesus is being staged in Colyton this week.
From Wednesday, June 21 until Sunday, June 25, St Andrew’s Colyton will be transformed into the Holy Land.
Jerusalem, Galilee, wilderness and shore will show the backdrop to God at Work – past, present, future.
The exhibition will showcase the places where key events in the life of Jesus happened including Cana, where he performed his first miracle; the Judean desert where he fought a spiritual battle against evil; the first Easter in Jerusalem - and many more.
By recreating these scenarios the people of St Andrew’s hope to help others to visualise what the life of Christ might have been like and to make the stories of the New Testament more alive and vivid.
Alongside the locations there will also be displays of flowers linked to the stories of Jesus’ life highlighted by the exhibition.
Visitors will be able to follow a story-trail and a timeline of Jesus’ life, and see how the concerns Jesus had for the people he met continue to inspire Christians today.
The exhibition will be open to pre-booked schools on weekday mornings and to the general public from 1pm.
Over the weekend of June 24 and 25, it will be open to all from 10am on Saturday, and Sunday from 11am, with special events during the evenings.
