Sunday 9 April — Witness
On Sunday 9 at Trinity Church, Abingdon there will be a Circuit Service in the
form of a performance of the musical, Witness (composed by James Garnett).
Witness tells the Easter story from the perspectives of those whose lives it
touched, including bystanders, Jesus' disciples, those in power, and — in
particular — the crowd. Through songs and monologues you will be invited to
experience a range of responses from the excitement of Palm Sunday to the
desolation of Good Friday and the wonder of Easter Day.
The performance will start at 4.00 and last for about an hour. Refreshments
will be served afterwards, and there will be a retiring collection for
charities to be chosen by the cast.
