God at work in St Andrew’s

GOD at Work – past, present, future

From June 21st to 25th St Andrew’s Colyton will be transformed into the Holy Land.  A major interactive exhibition will recreate important locations in the life of Jesus.  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 people 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 1.00pm.  Over the weekend of 24th-25th it will be open to all from 10.00am on Saturday, and Sunday from 11:00am with special events during the evenings – details of these below.
