Experience Easter

2017 marked our 8th and biggest yet Experience Easter, visited by around 500 people. Between Wednesday 30th and Friday 31st March 390 school children and their staff joined us, including groups from Kingfisher Special School, who had their very own sensory Easter Encounter back at school.

Then on Thursday 30th March there was a Musical Easter Journey with Abingdon Gospel Choir followed by a Family Open Morning on  Saturday April 1st. 

WITNESS - a new musical

Witness: On Sunday 9th April at Trinity Church, there was a Circuit Service in the form of a performance of the musical, Witness (composed by James Garnett).

Witness tells the Easter story from the perspectives of those whose lives it touched, including bystanders, Jesus' disciples, those in power, and - in particular - the crowd. Through songs and monologues we were invited to experience a range of responses from the excitement of Palm Sunday to the desolation of Good Friday and the wonder of Easter Day.

The performance was watched by about 100 people. Refreshments were served afterwards, and there was  a retiring collection for charities chosen by the cast.
