ACT OF FAITH - 18th February 2017

An Act of Faith – Seriously Seeing The Funny Side. One School Desk. One Character. One Act. From simple observations and everyday occurrences, to the more challenging and perplexing experiences, our character has learnt many lessons but still has unanswered questions. Sharing this story of ‘An Act of Faith’ gives people the opportunity to ask and consider their own questions, and hopefully inspire them to decide ‘What next?’

The show is written with honesty, humour, and a touch of vulnerability. It is hoped that together, in the company of friends, the audience will experience ‘An Act of Faith’, and seek courage and strength to take their own step of faith.

Act of Faith, a 40 minute one act show, written and performed by Sarah Grace. The evening will include music-lounge and cafe, and after the performance there will be a question and answer session with Sarah herself, for anyone who would like to stay.

This will be a great evening to bring friends, family and colleagues to. so start thinking and praying about who you would like to bring along.

19th February - Sunday morning worship will be led by Anna Lamplough (Birmingham Citadel) 

with contributions by Sarah Grace. 

Please put this date in your diary. What goes in the diary is less likely to be missed!
