Who runs LIFE EXHIBITION
The LIFE Exhibition is a COUNTIES project. COUNTIES is a UK-based
Christian charity. Through its workers, publications and exhibitions,
COUNTIES provides churches and schools with resources that make
Christianity understandable to all ages in the 21st Century.
LIFE builds on the success of other COUNTIES mobile exhibitions,
as GSUS Live, which have been visited by hundreds of thousands of
pupils and adults in recent years.
LIFE is available to schools free of charge through the sponsorship of
local hosting churches. The project is funded by the voluntary
contributions of Christian trusts, individuals and churches.
The LIFE Exhibition is an educational experience with active
learning opportunities, matched to the Non-Statutory Guidelines for
Religious Education in England and Wales, and meeting the requirements
for locally Agreed Syllabi. Using tablets, with text, graphics, DVD and
sound, the exhibition is a ‘hands on’ interactive learning experience.
LIFE tells of the life of Jesus, his Jewish roots, his teaching and
miracles, and his death, burial and resurrection. The final area of the
exhibition is the LIFE Café, where pupils can have refreshments and
discuss what they have seen and experienced.
For schools that have been invited to visit LIFE by a
local church or group of churches, there are loads of downloadable
resources and additional information available.
