Wintershall is best known for outstanding biblical drama productions, including The Life of Christ, The Nativity and The Passion of Jesus.
Wintershall Education was created to accompany these productions with a variety of resources and initiatives that encourage and enable Schools, Churches, Community Groups and Families to use Biblical Drama to ‘experience the story’ of Christianity.
Workshop themes include but are not limited to: Advent, Christmas, Lent, Easter, Leavers days, The Wonder of God's World, Choosing the right path, School Values and what it means to be part of a Christian community. The Education team can also tailor days specifically for your school, so do get in touch to discuss your needs.
The experience of attending a production here at the Wintershall Estate is more than just watching a play. Rather than tell the tale to a silent, observing audience, Wintershall encourage and remind the crowds that they too are part of the story. Your school group witness the same events that the actors do and walk with them as they journey with Jesus. There is no better way to learn the Christian story than by being immersed in it.
