Will you pray for the 2021 Norwich Passion Play?

Celebrate Norfolk is exploring the chance to stage a Passion Play in Norwich city centre on Easter Saturday (April 3), 2021, including professional Christian theatre company Saltmine and has issued a call for intercessors to support the initiative, writes Rev Canon Madeline Light.

Some of you will know that Celebrate is organising a Passion Play to be performed by drama company Saltmine in the Norwich city centre next Easter (restrictions allowing).

We need more people to pray as we find our way through the multiple issues of location, funding, rehearsals, technology, advertising, participation and also the easing of Covid-19 restrictions. 

Will you join us in praying for this event or is there someone in your church who oversees prayer? 

Please pass this request on to them and ask them to contact our administrator, Elizabeth Davey  passionplay@celebratenorfolk.co.uk to join our prayer list.

Prayer points:

  • Christian drama company Saltmine visited Norwich in October to start planning the performance. Please pray that we find someone local to co-ordinate our community cast of actors, an experienced steward and, most importantly, an expert in the audio technology to enable a multi-location outside event to be seen and heard. 
  • Please also pray for successful grants application to the Passion Trust and other charitable bodies. 
  • Please pray that we will have more offers of finance. Those who have already been praying will know we have already had some wonderful answers to prayer.
  • We will be sending fortnightly updates and welcome any words for us from intercessors who hear from the Lord.

Thank you very much for your help and support.
