Stationenweg 2017. Reformation 500 Year Anniversary.

In Williamson Sq, Liverpool today a truck arrived which is journeying around Europe as part of the Reformation 500 year jubilee.  The Storymobile travelling exhibition was officially opened by the Lord-Lieutenant of Merseyside, Dame Lorna Muirhead.

The Deutsche Kirche Liverpool and Gustaf Adolf Nordic Congregation helped out with this event which helps celebrate 500 years since Martin Luther made public 95 Theses on true repentance and against trading in indulgences on the 31st Oct 1517 in Wittenberg.

Representatives from the Nordic and German churches attended the event which seen members of the public invited onboard to share and listen to stories.  Interactive media was used aswell as leaflets and booklets available.  Guests were invited to listen to other Reformation stories and share their own.

The truck is travelling to 19 European countries with 67 destinations planned between Nov 2016 to May 2017.
