Lenten preaching: Jesus Christ, Superstar?

JCS 2020In anticipation of the forthcoming production of Jesus Christ Superstar at the church, we will be exploring the different characters presented in the musical on Sunday mornings in Lent. As part of their worship, preachers will explore the presentation of the key characters in the Passion story and the issues their stories raise:

  • 1 March: 'Superstar' – Jesus, the Christ (Rev'd Geoffrey Farrar)
  • 8 March: 'Could we start again, please?' – Judas and the disciples (Rev'd Nicola Morrison)
  • 15 March: 'I dreamt I met a Galilean' – Pontius Pilate (Deacon Kathy Johnson)
  • 22 March: 'So, you are the Christ?' – Herod and Caiaphas (Mr Bill Topping and Ms Imogen Rush)
  • 29 March: 'Why should I die?' – Jesus, the man (Rev'd Allison Waterhouse)
  • 5 April: 'I don’t know how to love him' – Mary Magdalene (Ms Jessica Dalton)

We hope that this will be an interesting and challenging series that will help us look anew at a familiar story.
