School children in Sudbury and the surrounding district will soon be discovering about the life and impact of Jesus Christ. The LIFE Exhibition, which travels the length and breadth of the country, is coming to Suffolk Road Church, Sudbury, from 9 to 16 March 2020.

Created by national Christian organisation Counties, the exhibition is being organised locally by a group of local churches, together with local charity Number 72 (The Family and Community Network). 

The exhibition involves a multi-media experience, including DVD and music clips, with something for all ages. Visitors use android tablet technology to move through the exhibits.

Children in Key Stage 2 from local primary schools are being invited to visit the exhibition during the week.

On the Thursday and Friday evenings, it will be open to other children’s groups being run in the local area. 

On Saturday 14th it will be open to the general public.


National LIFE Exhibition Co-ordinator, Kevin Baldwin, says,

“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. Many people see Jesus as an inspirational figure, and we want to help people consider the meaning of Christ’s miracles and teaching, and the impact of his death and resurrection, not just 2,000 years ago, but still today. The idea is to take a look at what we know about Jesus and let people make up their own mind. The children who have visited the exhibition in previous venues have really enjoyed the experience, which includes its own LIFE Café serving free refreshments.”

Admission and refreshments are free.
