Modern technology used for exhibition about Jesus
HUNDREDS of primary school children from Minehead and surrounding villages have been finding out more about the life of Jesus.
The LIFE Exhibition, which travels the length and breadth of the country and is visited by 1,000 people every week, has been at Minehead Baptist Church since Tuesday and will be there until Monday (March 25).
The multi-media exhibition includes a DVD and music clips, with visitors able to interact by using hand-held Personal Digital Assistant (PDA) technology.
Coordinator Martin Buckley said: “The purpose of the exhibition is to give people an opportunity to think for themselves about who Jesus really is.
“No single person has ever done more to influence the course of history, and to affect so many people's lives, and yet there is still so much misunderstanding around his life, death and resurrection.
“The idea is to take a look at what we know about Jesus, and let people make up their own mind. Children who have visited the exhibition in other venues have really enjoyed the whole experience, which includes its own 'LIFE Café'.”
Members of the public will also be able to visit the exhibition, from 10am to 3.30pm on Saturday and from 4pm to 7pm on Sunday.
