St Barnabas, Worcester becomes an Eco Church!

St Barnabas gains bronze Eco Church award 23 Apr 2019

Congratulations to St Barnabas Church in Worcester who have gained their bronze Eco Church award.

St Barnabas Church, Worcester is now an ECO Church having recently been awarded a Bronze Award.Vicar, Julieann Watson, tells us all about it: We are an urban church and have been asked how we did this. Surrounded by so much of the built environment we wondered if we could be involved with the call to be ECO and make any difference at all.

MALVERN MYSTERY PLAY

Where: Great Malvern Priory Church
When: 24th April - 8th May (not Sundays) at 7.30 pm

Great Malvern Priory is to be the setting for a modern Mystery Play.

The production will take place inside The Priory which will be dramatically transformed for the performances. The set reaches almost to the ceiling and it is anticipated that over a two-week period it will attract a huge audience.

Rob Swinton, the Director, has written the play especially for Malvern. He is a Malvern man. He came for a walk on the hills 33 years ago and never went away. He is a prize-winning professional actor and director, a member of the Royal National Theatre and has been artistic director of the Stafford Shakespeare Festival.

‘It tells the story of the world,’ said Rob, ‘from its beginning to its end, from God creating the universe to the last trump.’ he said. ‘This is a contemporary story based on historical tradition, but it looks at life as we live it now.

The specially commissioned music has been composed by the Priory’s musical director Piers Maxim who has conducted in opera houses throughout Europe and in New York, Cape Town and Beijing.

The set is designed by John West who won an award for his work on TV’s ‘Victoria’.

This is a play not to be missed! All proceeds from the Play will go towards the restoration of the Priory stonework together with a generous grant from the National Lottery Heritage Fund and from the Elmley Foundation and Bransford Trust.
