Mary Jones World formally opened

Creative Good recently completed the installation of a new exhibition within the deconsecrated church of St Bueno\’s in Llanycil, Bala. Mary Jones World tells the story of a 15 year old girl who, in 1800, walked 26 miles to buy a Bible, an event that led directly to the formation of Bible Society.


The new visitor and education centre was formally opened on 5th October 2014 at a ceremony attended by dignitaries from around the World, to mark the bicentenary of the death of Thomas Charles, who formed British and Foreign Bible Society in 1804.


The opening has been reported by the BBC, ITV and Bible Society themselves.
