MarkDramaCFDramatic experiment at mid-Norfolk church

A mid-Norfolk church is embarking in The Mark Drama, an innovative way of experiencing the Gospel of Mark and communicating it to others - performed via theatre -  and they are inviting people to get involved. ?


Members of the Mattishall and Tudd Valley Benefice are taking a leap of faith in putting on the Mark Drama, also known as the Mark Experiment, and are appealing to the Norfolk Christian community to get behind the project.
Jackie Crisp from Mattishall church explains about the project, “Firstly, it is about learning the gospel of Mark.  Mark did not expect people to read his gospel but to listen to it. It was written so people could memorize it, not word for word, but bit by bit, to get to know Jesus better and to tell the story to others.  So it is missional too!”
“Secondly, this is a book about rediscovering Jesus.  It’s about getting to know Him better, loving Him and enjoying Him.  If that’s what you want, then you can be sure Jesus wants you to experience that much more than you do.”
The performance will involve members of the church re-enacting Mark’s gospel at two performances later in the year. For the drama to go ahead, there needs to be 15 people; 8 men and 7 women and people under 35 are particularly welcome. There will be an information morning on Saturday September 8 from 10 – 11.30am for anyone who would like to learn more about this project before making any commitment.  All are most welcome.
Jackie said, “This experiment is about learning the gospel so we can get to know Jesus better and share His love with others.”
The performances are planned for later in the year; on the 17th (Evening) and 18th November (afternoon).
