October 2019 sees a new play from Christian Voices – Gifts from God!
When a wealthy master trusts his fortune to his three servants whilst he has to go away, he expects them to act wisely – perhaps even make him a profit.
But will the servants make the most of what has been given to them? Do any of us?
Based on the parable of Jesus that appears in two Gospels: Matthew (chapter 25, versus 14-30) and Luke (chapter 19, versus 11-27), The Parable of the Talents.
The play was written by Alan Young, with songs by Dave Chamberlin. The director is Caroline Cox.
