“I can see so far”, said one young boy in amazement, as he got off the coach after the long journey from central London. He, like many of our school groups, expressed such wonder and disbelief at the beauty and the space here at Wintershall.
Nearly 3000 children joined us for The Life of Christ this June. Here is what some of them had to say about the experience:
“The story came out of the book and we realised this was more than words… it was someone’s life”
“I liked seeing the stories I had learnt from the Bible in real life”
“I knew the story of Jesus already, but watching the play really helped me get to know it more and find out details I didn’t know before”
“It really helped me to put together what I didn’t get before.”
“I loved the dynamics of the cast, they appeared out of nowhere – in front, behind you, in the crowd…. And things like the man jumping in the lake and the children running away from the soldiers – very effective”
“I got to be involved in the crucifixion part. I sat with Jesus’ friends when he was on the cross..on the stage!”
“I didn’t know that sometimes Jesus’ friends were grumpy like Peter..or maybe they were scared?”
“It is way better than a teacher reading it to us from a book!
