The Bible Alive exhibition opened at the Christ Church United Reformed Church, in William Street, Windsor, last night with the aim of transporting visitors back to the era of the Bible.
The exhibition, curated by Reverend David Crowther and wife Sally from Meadowsweet Close, Thatcham, includes a goat-hair style tent popular in the time of Abraham, different styles and translations of the Bible and copies of the Dead Sea Scrolls.
Rev Crowther said: "The exhibition is about the Holy Lands in Biblical times, so will also appeal to people of all faiths or no faith. There will be activities for children and young people. Everyone will be most welcome!"
