The Christian Heritage Trust’s exhibition in Birmingham is a first class display of some of the most important artefacts in English religious history. This is a well thought out exhibition which is gripping from start to finish, looking at the earliest translations and going through to more recent times. It is packed full of precise details and gives a valuable insight into the religious story of the nation. Thoroughly accessible and beautifully displayed, this exhibition would make a wonderful visit for schools, churches and families. This is an exhibition that brings history to life with its wide range of rare artefacts which people would be hard pressed to see anywhere else. Thoroughly recommended; this is one of the best historical exhibitions that I have been to in a very long time.

This is a delightful exhibition with a huge variety of invaluable memorabilia providing a fascinating insight into our Christian Heritage and tradition and a wealth of information about our past history and lifestyle both locally and nationally. It is well worth a visit.
Many of the things on display here you can touch and see for real which you would only normally be able to see in pictures. A thoroughly valuable collection in every way.

Following our visit to the Heritage Centre on Wednesday, I am writing to express our thanks for all the hard work and effort your team put into our visit. The children had o fantastic time and we were made to feel very welcome.
The visit enabled the children to learn about on aspect of the Tudor’s that we have never covered before. The children enjoyed hearing about the story of William Tyndale and being able to see a Bible from the Tudor period was a unique experience. Your knowledge and enthusiasm for the subject was infectious, and the children returned to school motivated and keen to learn more.
The creative task, which involved making a chained Bible and pulpit, was thoroughly enjoyed by all the children and they could not wait to decorate them when they returned to school
We are most grateful for having the opportunity to visit the Centre and I am keen to visit again next year!
I hope that you continue to open your doors to other schools as the experience was thoroughly enjoyed by all.

We just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for putting on the visit for us this morning. The children (and staff!) really enjoyed it and learnt lots about the Victorians and your church. Everyone was so lovely and helpful and we really appreciate the time you spent with us and the effort that was put into making our visit so special. We will most certainly be telling the rest of the staff about our visit and encouraging other year groups to come too.
