Easter Experience

Easter Experience uses drama to tell the story of Holy Week to local junior school children. One year group comes to each performance. This is an inter-church project and part of the ongoing work of Sutton Schoolswork.

Cast of Easter ExperienceActors from a number of local churches take us back to Jerusalem in the last week of Christ's life. We wave palms to welcome Jesus into the city; see Jesus chase the money changers from the Temple; witness his capture and trial before Pontius Pilate, the Roman Governor; choose between Jesus and Barabbas; and finally experience his death on the cross and the empty garden tomb.

Easter Experience priests Some of the visiting children and teachers became extras in these events, taking the part of Roman soldiers, or eating with Jesus at the Last Supper. It is a great learning opportunity for local school children as Easter approaches.

Easter Experience 2016 was presented to more than 1,500 children at three venues across the borough, of which our church was one.
