Easter Experience

Jesus before Pilate
Jesus is brought before Pilate

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

Each year there is a public preview of Easter Experience on the Sunday evening immediately before the week of performances to schools. Please see the church calendar for details.

Actors from a number of local churches take us back to Jerusalem in the last week of Jesus'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.

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.
