3 Mark Drama performances in 24 hours.
15 volunteer actors from around the U.K.

Nearly 900 attendees.
What a week we had last week!
UCCF had their annual student leader’s conference FORUM and launched Uncover Mark, which is part of the Uncover series that encourages students to encounter Jesus by reading a gospel and discussing it with a friend.
Over the next few years, Christian Unions in the UK will be going for it in inviting fellow students to look at Jesus in Mark’s gospel. As part of this, UCCF invited us to come and put on a Mark Drama so students could see it and consider doing the Mark Drama at their campus.
It was amazing. FORUM is an exciting conference and we were honoured to be a part of it. Many people were moved by the performances and came and spoke to members of the team afterwards. Some UCCF staff said that even the sceptics were converted to doing the Mark Drama!
In all, some 25 Christian Unions expressed a desire to do the Mark Drama in the next academic year and gave specific dates for when they would like to do it. Our challenge now is to provide directors for each production so they can happen!
Please do pray for enough capable, quality directors and please thank God with us for how he helped us this past week at FORUM.
We are excited for what God is doing and will do through UCCF, Uncover Mark, and the Mark Drama!
