CCU Mark Drama Performance
18 August, 2016
Riverton Baptist Church
Many people these days are not interested in reading the Bible. They think that it is irrelevant, old-fashioned, or unreliable.
Dusting off the old book, the Mark Drama turns Mark’s biographical account of Jesus into a 90 minute, fast-paced, theatre-in-the-round stage production. Fully immersed in the action, the audience hears the words of Jesus as recorded in Mark’s gospel.
Just as the disciples ask, ‘Who is this man, that even the wind and the waves obey him?’ (Mark 4:41), guests can discover for themselves – is Jesus just another guy with imaginative ideas about God, or is he truly the King of the universe?
Come and experience Mark Drama for yourself, performed by students from Perth universities. Tickets are $5, and the performance itself is 7:30-9pm, followed by a light supper. Doors will open at 7pm, and we ask that guests are seated by 7:20 so the performance can start at 7:30. Tickets are limited and can be purchased online or on campus during the first 3 weeks of semester.
ANYONE AND EVERYONE WELCOME
The event is put on by the AFES university Christian groups, but the event is for everyone - not just uni students, and not just Christians.
"The thought of drama in church normally makes me cringe, so the Mark Drama came as an astonishing and powerful surprise. In a form that is accessible and clear to all, yet utterly faithful to the text of Mark’s Gospel, it offers nothing less than a brilliant, vivid encounter with the person and work of the Lord Jesus Christ."
Dr William Philip, Minister, St George’s-Tron Church, Glasgow
