Discovering Narnia

Discovering Narnia Exhibition

At the end of June 2013 the church held an exhibition, which has become an annual event to which we invite local schools.

Being the 50th anniversary of the death of C.S. Lewis, we based the exhibition on his writings.  The Discovering Narnia Exhibition focused on the Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe, which proved very engaging, enabling the Gospel to be clearly shared.

Through the week around 360 children visited the exhibition from 3 different local schools, 25 to 30 children attending each session.  The visits included an illustrated talk, a look around the exhibition, completion of worksheets and a craft activity.

Feedback from the teachers was very positive with teachers indicating that they would bring pupils to any future exhibition activities.

To end the week of exhibition, we opened to the public on the Saturday when we provided tea/coffee and cake and lots of opportunity to engage in conversation, as we endeavoured to share the gospel.  Children were kept busy with craft activities, which proved very popular.  We anticipated that we would have plenty of visitors but praise God that over 150 people visited, with many staying for long periods of time.

If you wish you can view the exhibition material here and should you wish to have printable copies please contact philip@peelstreet.org.uk.  The church is also able to lend out much of the exhibition material should other churches wish to organise an exhibition.
