Gospel Street… retelling the news
People are out on the street.
Another generation is looking for answers – a rich young career woman, an angry gang leader, religious fanatics, activists, crooked bankers, a surprising refugee and the bloke who bought some seriously expensive jewellery.
Despite their differences and social divisions, 140 characters want to meet one extraordinary person. Jesus has arrived on their street on the lookout for trouble – looking to do something about it.
Four young evangelists – two women, two men – piece together the startling story of what happened, just now, on that street. It’s a wild ride through issues …

Do come and hear our newly refurbished organ at its inaugural recital on Saturday 11th March at 4pm.
Clive Grant will play music by JS Bach, Antonio Soler, Olivier Messiaen, William Walton, Jean Alain and Henri Mulet.
