The exhibition, which is based at the Christian Heritage Centre, has been designed to demonstrate the massive impact that Christianity has had on the life of our country.
Through a series of almost 50 illustrated and written panels, along with a large collection of fascinating artefacts and objects, the story of Christianity in Britain is told. The panels cover the following topics:
- The English Bible and its Origins
- The Norman Conquest
- John Wickliffe and the Lollards
- The Advent of Printing
- Martin Luther and the Reformation
- The Sailing of the Mayflower
- The Civil War
- The Glorious Revolution 1688
- Great Scientists
- 19th Century Social Reform
Providence chapel itself, where the exhibition is situated, was built in 1875 and is a typical Black Country nonconformist chapel. It still contains many of its original features, making it an ideal setting for viewing the exhibition.
In general, the exhibition shows how Christianity is the safeguard of liberty and free conscience and how its message of salvation through Jesus Christ can provide every member of society with the power and inspiration to live a virtuous and useful life.
