Dear God...
“Hardly anyone can ever find God because God is right at the end of your mind after all the background thoughts are gone.”

Hamilton Passion Play 2018
Renewal Through Resurrection

Our project is to produce a Passion Play on Easter Saturday, as part of Holy Week celebrations. This will be staged in our high street and will involve a community cast as well as a professional actor playing Jesus. Our local company and audience members will have opportunity to experience the real Easter story first hand. The project will:-
  1. Build on the success of 2017’s “Walk with Christ” (where scenes from a Pasion Play were serialised throughout Holy Week, predominantly in or around the church) through staging a Passion Play on a larger scale, including performing a full play as opposed to a series of scenes. All will be performed in the High Street.
  2. Bring together church and community to assemble a large cast and crew to deliver the project. This will include the opportunity for developing leadership roles
  3. Deliver a comprehensive package of marketing, with the Passion Play as the focus, incorporating all aspects of Holy Week celebrations; working to ensure that the gospel message is not lost amongst publicity for egg hunts
  4. Take Easter celebrations into the community, offering those outwith the church community a faith experience
  5. Offer the existing Christian community an opportunity to further explore the Easter story through creative arts
