Bible Society is pleased to be partnering with Eternal Wall of Answered Prayer

Backed by leaders from Anglican, Catholic, Nonconformist and Pentecostal Churches, Eternal Wall is a visionary piece of public art aimed at pointing people to Jesus.

It's set to be built on a piece of donated land in the Midlands at Coleshill, near the junction of the M6 and M42. Constructed in the form of a Möbius strip, symbolising eternity, it will be more than twice the height of the Angel of the North and visible from over six miles away. As well as motorway travellers, passengers on HS2 will be able to see it – and it's on the flight path for Birmingham Airport. It will be visible to more than half a million travellers every week.

It's not just art, though. A Visitor Centre will serve as an education hub and meeting place – and every one of Eternal Wall's million bricks will be digitally linked to a story of answered prayer. Using a unique bespoke app, visitors will be able to explore the unique story to which each brick is linked – and even search for stories by themes, like healing, family or forgiveness.

Eternal Wall is working to make sure that those who engage with it – many of whom will be spiritually open people rather than committed churchgoing Christians – are helped and encouraged on their spiritual journey. Bible Society will be helping with its digital strategy, and with online and other resources to help spiritual seekers discover the Jesus of the Bible.

As well as pointing people to Jesus through its million prayer bricks, Eternal Wall is aiming to fund a million bricks worth of social housing, which will provide finance to build 100 houses for social action charities, council housing associations and international social housing charities.
