Over 3000 people turned out at St Michael’s Church, Middlewich, to enjoy the ‘The Big Story’, a multi-sensory experience of bible stories.
Following the success of similar events in 2012 and 2015, St Michael’s Church invited six local primary schools to contribute to the event, weaving together a maze of tunnels, caves and open spaces depicting some of the main Bible stories and themes and filling the entire church building.
People turned out in droves to stroll through the Garden of Eden, Climb aboard Noah's Ark, Escape from Egypt, be in awe of Solomon's Temple, smell the Sea of Galilee in the flooded chapel and enter the Gloomy Tomb with its own 7ft stone to roll away.
Jeremy Coles, St Michael’s Director of Music and Family Work, says: “It was a tremendous effort by the church and school community and such a privilege to speak to people of God’s love for them in the context of His Big Story. To see over 3000 people enjoy the experience was inspiring and extraordinary.”
