Featuring an image of Jesus proclaiming the message, 'I am the Resurrection and the Life' the display has been unveiled by the Bishop of Lancaster Rt Rev Geoff Pearson.
Commenting on the display, which is adorned with hundreds of light bulbs, Bishop Geoff said: "This is a fantastic initiative by Churches on the Fylde Coast".

He was joined by the Mayor of Blackpook Councillor Kath Rowson at a dedication service for the monument on Queen's Promenade, which included a performance by the Mereside Community Choir.
The display was the brainchild of Area Dean of Blackpool Rev Canon Dr Simon Cox and Blackpool Council Diversity Officer Andy Divall.
People have been encouraged by Churches Together Bispham, which adopted the project, to donate towards its £25,000 cost.
Rev Cox said: "We expect it will be viewed annually by 3.5m visitors, and it has a lifespan of at least 15 years.
"The cost works out at less than a ½p per predicted number of views over time and we want to encourage people in churches and church schools of all denominations across the County of Lancashire and beyond to contribute, collectively or as individuals."
