Friday 18th November at 7:15pm

We are excited to be hosting an unforgettable evening of story telling, theatre, music and mirth with speaker and author Jeff Lucas and the Searchlight Theatre Company.

Tracing the story of Barnabas, a largely overlooked Biblical character who contributed so much to the life of the early church, the evening will help you to live the everyday life in a beautiful way. Barnabas is a tremendous example of generosity, encouragement, believing the best and his life also teaches important lessons about maintaining unity and navigating conflict. 

Poignant, laugh out loud, hilarious, heart warming and occasionally gut wrenching There Are No Ordinary People promises to leave you entertained, inspired and encouraged.

Tickets are available now from our Parish Office at the full price of 12.00 or from the online box office for 12.45, which includes a booking fee of 45p per ticket.  Please use this link to book your tickets : Searchlight Theatre Box Office
