The Gospel of Mark, in 90 minutes
For the Mark Drama, you don't need props, costumes or professionals.
But you can present every incident in Mark’s Gospel vividly and powerfully to a group of invited guests, with a team of 15 actors from your church or Christian Union. It is an amazing experience for Christians, reminding them of the work of Jesus, and it’s also great for anyone investigating the Christian faith.
How does it work?
Tell me more about what would happen.
The Mark Drama involves a team of 15 people from your church or Christian Union, who learn the order of the events in Mark’s Gospel over 6 weeks using The Mark Experiment. We’ll send a director, who will guide the actors through 3 rehearsals. Most groups put on two performances. If you have more questions, read our FAQs.
I'd like to put on a production.

Who would we invite to performances of the Mark Drama?
The performances are great opportunities to invite friends, family or neighbours who are not yet Christians. There are many people who are not ready yet to come to an evangelistic talk, but who will come to a drama event. After the performance free copies of Mark are available, and perhaps invitations to Christianity Explored (which is based on Mark) or Alpha.
We strongly recommend that no one under the age of 8 should come to a Mark Drama performance.
