Volunteers Induction Meeting for Passion for Bolton last week.
About 100 people gathered for this launch meeting to sign up to contribute their talents to putting on this Passion play. It was an exciting meeting with the producer Geoff (photo on right) outlining what is involved in staging this event using 150+ actors, as well as a whole host of skills being needed for make-up, scenery, prayer ministry, sound systems (Revd Mark Bates on the left in the photo) etc. The last time this was staged 6 years ago it attracted between 3 – 4,000 people. It is a marvellous witness to the Christian message of Easter presented in a powerful way, and testimony to what is possible when Christians from across all traditions work together. Please pray for all involved and the massive amount of work and practice that needs to happen before March next year.
