Easter Resources

We have some wonderful resources for Easter. Here are some that can be used at home or as part of church events online and in person.

Breaking Day

A lockdown passion play, by Les Ellison, for Easter 2021.

As day begins to break on Good Friday, the occupying Governor’s tenuous grip on authority is slipping. It’s festival time in Jerusalem but his wife is plagued with disturbing dreams. Amid the demands of the Sanhedrin and the murderous cries of the mob, the lines between personal and political in Pilate’s house start to blur.  The teacher at the centre of it all remains silent.

With stark intimacy, Breaking Day casts a surprising light on the death of Jesus from inside the Governor’s household, immersing us in the decisions that led to crucifixion. Available for individuals to watch at home or for church groups between 15 March – 15 April 2021.

Add Drama to Easter

Ten sketches from Riding Lights which spotlight significant personal encounters within the world-turned-upside-down story of Easter… encounters with Jesus that were life-changing. These sketches have different styles and energy – they are moving, punchy, sometimes humorous and give a few unexpected perspectives on the familiar gospel events…

A tax-collector dishes out generous rebates, the owner of the Palm Sunday donkey feels somehow complicit in Jesus’s death, Barabbas watches a man die on a cross that was made for him, a thief finds the doors to Paradise unlocked, a private investigator is challenged to locate a missing corpse, daffodils discuss the likelihood of life after death..

Available as an instant digital download.

Crosslight on Film

The disciple chosen to lead, is in pieces. Caught in the crosslight of the flickering candles at the last supper, the torches of Gethsemane, the firelight in the courtyard, by the searching gaze of his Lord, Simon ‘the rock’ is shattered.

The film of Crosslight is available to download from the shop. There is also a DVD version available.
Please note the shipping time may be slightly longer than usual for the DVD as we work from home.

 

 

The Narrow Road Script

Amid the heat and beauty of ancient Palestine, a man stands on a dusty road. An extraordinary journey will take place, retracing the footsteps of Jesus through a world of miracles and madness, violence and liberation. As the Narrow Road is walked, this turbulent world is turned upside down and its inhabitants confronted by an unexpected and surprising vision.

The script of The Narrow Road, a powerful passion play for the journey to Easter, and our intended 2020 lent tour, available in printed format.
