Jesus Christ: Superstar?
This year, we shall be using the musical Jesus Christ Superstar as the basis for our Lenten Bible study. On the four Fridays in March, we shall be working our way through the film version of the musical, reading the scriptural passages it draws upon and exploring the issues it raises: Who was Jesus? Why did he provoke such differing responses? What did it mean for him to be the Messiah? Please join us from 10:30 am to 12 noon on Fridays in March. The first session will be on Friday, 6 March and anyone is welcome to attend. There will be no need to attend all four sessions.
If the Bible Study whets your appetite, please consider seeing the musical itself. On 1-4 April, Putney Methodist Church will be hosting a production by the Putney Light Operatic Society (PLOS). Tickets cost £18 (full price) and £16 (concession). For more details and to book tickets, click here.
