The bible comes alive at Walsall church event

The stories of the bible were told in a unique way at a church’s anniversary event.

Crafted Bible Stories was the centrepiece of a weekend of celebrations for Central Hall Methodist Church in Walsall as the church marked its 190th anniversary, having opened in 1829.

The event, which took place in the church on Ablewell Street, saw 15 different exhibits on display, including Noah in the Lego bulrushes, Jonah’s collaged whale and a knitted version of the last supper.

Keely Gabriel, Project Manager for Ablewell Advice Walsall, takes in the sermon on the mount.

It was attended by over 200 people, who also had the opportunity to make a lion from the available fabrics and other items on offer to put in Daniel’s Den and buy a charity token to vote for their favourite exhibit. At the end of the event, the knitted version of Noah’s Ark created by Central Hall Methodist Church was judged to be the favourite exhibit.

The event also helped to raise £316 for Ablewell Advice Walsall, a mission project of the Central Hall which specialises in providing debt and welfare benefits advice, has a job club and is a distribution centre for the Black Country Foodbank.
