The Vigil Dress Rehearsal

It's Monday night and I'm at the first dress rehearsal for The Vigil. It's fantastic! Not suitable for young children (no singing or dancing!) but the quality of everything, from the set to the acting, from the costumes to the sound and lighting leave me amazed again at the quality and gifting of the people in our community.

The play takes me back to when I was an 18 year old atheist, trying to work out who Jesus was. I quite quickly realised that the whole of the Christian faith rests on whether or not Jesus was raised from the dead. If he wasn't then the rest of Christianity can be dismissed as nonsense. But if he was raised from the dead then everything else Jesus said and did takes on a whole new relevance. The play examines the evidence around the resurrection and the pivotal question of what happened to the body of Jesus.

Tickets are still available for all three performances (1st, 2nd and 3rd April at 7.30pm), although they're going fast. You can order them here or get them by coming into The Kerith Centre reception during the week. Please come, and be inviting guests, to what is going to be a brilliant evening.

Parking for all three performances is at Avis, leaving the Kerith parking for the elderly and the disabled.

See you there!

Simon.
