Gospel of Mark performance at Norwich church
St Edmund's church in Taverham is hosting a dramatic retelling of the complete gospel of Mark by Rev Ian Birkenshaw on Saturday February 1.
A traveller arrives to tell the story of a preacher and miracle-worker whose dynamic presence touches the lives of all who meet him… with the most astonishing twist-in-the-tale the world has ever known!
There is joy and sorrow, comedy and pathos, as Mark’s fast-moving narrative brings the characters to life.
The drama is underscored throughout by live music.
In the second act we begin the journey to Jerusalem and the Cross, with an open invitation to share bread and wine before the startling discovery of the empty tomb.
I never describe anything as awesome but tonight I saw two men give a properly awesome performance of The Gospel of Mark.
It was incredibly captivating.
So many insights into the life and teaching of Christ.
I thought I knew the Gospel of Mark but what you brought us was like fresh rain.
