Gospel Street had young people spellbound

YOUNG people from across the Wakefield Area were invited to a special evening of theatre, comedy, spoken word and music in St George’s Church, Lupset to watch Riding Lights’s latest touring show, Gospel Street.

It was the Bishop of Wakefield, Bishop Tony’s second youth event as part of the Community of All Saints initiative and he welcomed 65 young people and adults on a cold November night.

Said Bishop Tony: “The four actors from Riding Lights put on a very polished performance. You could hear a pin drop during some of the performances.

“It was great to see lots of young people captivated and engaged,” he said.

Gospel Street is the latest touring show from Riding Lights Theatre company which tells an exciting and contemporary story with a challenging message as four young evangelists deliver the modern day telling of various parables and events from the Gospels. 

Hot dogs and candy floss was served in the interval and chocolate and sweets were distributed at the end of the show.

Gospel Street was the second youth event following the successful Murder in the Cathedral event earlier this year. Bishop Tony has just announced the next youth event will take place in Wakefield Cathedral on Friday 16 March 2018 at 7pm.

SAVE THE DATE: 28 September 2018 - 7pm 

Further details will be sent out in the new year.
