Oops … In all of the business of Day One we didn’t manage to get an update posted .. !
Anyway ! Day One at Curtains Up! Was the crazy, fun, frantic, special day that we have come to expect from Day One @ CU!
Despite the heat causing a few technical problems in the theatre we have had a great 1st day!
We had great fun playing a games in our study groups – involving spaghetti, jelly beans, post it notes, iced ring biscuits and of course lots of fun!
That evening we had a great time together in sung worship led by Jenny and Dewi. Alex and his team spent some time looking at Jesus and what he did ( which is a LOT to cram into an evening meeting!) We also heard from some of the Crew about what Jesus means to them.
There was then time to respond to what we had heard in a variety of ways. Prayer, sitting at a cross that Alex had made, writing a letter, asking questions and discussing with the Crew stuff that had come up that evening.
We then had the grand opening of the Tuck Shop – which if I’m honest wasn’t very grand but it was very popular! Followed by a chilled chillout time … Well … as chilled as a chillout time can be after the consumption of much sugary snacks!
It was a great day. Its been awesome to see the Cast and Crew having so much fun already. Its also been a real privilege so see God moving so clearly amongst the Cast and Crew.
Points for prayer – the weather is GREAT but the heat is sapping energy fast! So prayers for energy would be great!
