Faith In The Questions

Riding Lights Theatre Company and Scientists in Congregations present

Faith In The Questions

Counting The Clouds a new one act play by Nigel Forde

Followed by conversation with leading scientists


A respected scientist and a christian, Job’s work is wrestling with the unpredictable as well as predictable structure of the universe. Is God really in control?

When his personal world is shaken to the core, how can Job re-assemble the pieces of the puzzle – professionally and spiritually?

Compared with the centuries long hand-in-hand relationship between religious faith and scientific enquiry, recent debate has, for many people, become mistrustful and sharply adversarial. Which side is God on? Or is this the wrong question to ask?

One of any number of good and provocative questions thrown out by Faith in the Questions, a combination of theatre and scientific discussion.

Come and raise your questions…

Faith in the Questions was originally performed in York at St Michael Le Belfrey Church as part of the York Festival Of Ideas. It is now touring the UK in January and February 2018.

Where Adventure Begins

written and directed by Paul Burbridge
designed by Sean Cavanagh and Anna Gooch
presented by New Wine and Riding Lights Theatre Company

Family is far from simple…

Brace yourselves as bold church leaders plunge headlong into the dizzy world of young discipleship. Gasp as perplexed parents hang on for the white-knuckle ride of the teenage years. Thrill in amazement as overworked, relentlessly positive Youth Worker, Ryan, negotiates a string of minor disasters on the famous camping trip to Wales. And what of Winston the cat’s role in family prayers?

Meet Jake, Jasmine and Ellie as they re-live their childhood and teenage experiences of Christian faith at home and at church.

Nobody knows how it will turn out, but everyone’s agreed that we need to keep together on the adventure of faith.

In a brilliantly entertaining show – real, touching, hilarious – Riding Lights create an unmissable piece of theatre to deepen our understanding of ‘family’.

Touring the UK: January – March 2018
