Life of Christ for School Leaders
We are delighted to welcome thousands of school children to our performance of ‘The Life of Christ’ each year. Suitable for KS2 upwards, schools use the performance as a resource for RE teaching and learning to deepen their understanding of Christianity and of the life and impact of Jesus. The performance also serves as a rich stimulus for values enquiry, theatre studies, history and spiritual development.
Feedback from 2023
"Our children were just in ore from the very first moment, they loved the real animals and there were many comments like "it feels like we are really there!". I have seen the production many times before but never tire of seeing it again and again. Something new to be found in every viewing!
"It was a fantastic day which definitely created a sense of awe and wonder with my Year 4 class. They made good links to their learning in school also"
" The actor playing Jesus was amazing but so too were all the cast. Our Year 8 students loved the bread given out during the Feeding of the 5000 and we all found following the funeral procession to the cave profoundly moving. Utterly unforgettable experience. Thank you!"
"This experience fits in so well with the new curriculum and we will be reflecting back on it in the coming year in our RE lessons. You've made it easy!"
