In the week beginning Monday 28th March we hosted the Bible Times exhibition in the Pendle Room of the United Reformed Church. The exhibition was funded by local churches. To find out more follow this link: all the local state primary schools sent pupils and around 400 children and adults saw the exhibition. The Exhibition was also open to the public 7.30 - 9 pm Tuesday 29th March and Thursday 31st March.
The Bible is so much more than one book. The sixty-six books that make up our Bible include histories, poetry, letters, prophesies and more. Its history is full of fascinating facts and the people who wrote it and who have translated it have lived through exciting, often dangerous times.
Rev Stan Woods and his wife Brenda have gathered the exhibition over the years and lovingly cared for it, taking it out wherever people want to hear the stories of the book and its people. The exhibition includes exhibits up to 3000 years old, covering the history of the Bible and how it has impacted society right up to the present day.
Visitors will be surprised at the breadth and depth of the collection.
