Keswick Lecture: British Evangelicalism in the Post-COVID Context

The past two years have been tremendously challenging churches. The pandemic has expedited the decline of the church in UK with some denominations facing extinction. At the same time evangelical churches are slowly growing. What is the current state of British evangelicalism and what are the prospects for the next decade? We will consider issues of theology, identity, unity, diversity, and mission.

If Prison Walls Could Speak

If Prison Walls Could Speak is a brand-new theatrical presentation written and produced by Artless Theatre Company in partnership with Release International.

If Prison Walls Could Speak contains a message that is both inspiring and challenging for both Christian and non-Christian audiences alike.

This one-man play is a hybrid multimedia performance featuring immersive video and sound.

Based on the book Imprisoned With Isis: Faith In The Face Of Evil, the play tells the true life story of Petr Jasek, who in 2015, was imprisoned for his work aiding the persecuted church in Sudan.

Charged as a spy and forced into horrifying prison conditions, If Prison Walls Could Speak is a powerful story of faith amid corruption and espionage, as Petr faces torturers, ISIS fighters and corrupt judges on his path to freedom.

No ticket purchase or reservation needed.
