What we do
Each year Christians from across Yorkshire design and steward a display on a Christian theme for the Great Yorkshire Show.
The team aim to make the display accessible, inter-active and for all ages, giving plenty of opportunity for volunteer stewards to reflect on the theme too. In recent years the Yorkshire Church on Show display has attracted over 4,500 visitors over the three days of the show. For some, visiting the display has become an annual priority.
Who we are
People from Christian Churches across Yorkshire work together to make and steward the display. The Great Yorkshire Show is held every July in Harrogate. The Yorkshire Agricultural Society kindly allows the Church On Show exclusive use of a former cricket pavilion on the showground to mount their inter-active display.

What makes it Work?
The success of our approach has been carefully developed over the years as we have listened to what our visitors say. A short paper explains our thinking.
