Esther – Coming Soon

During May 2022 Christian Voices will be performing their 31st play, based on the story of “One of God’s people. Queen to a foreign king. Saved God’s people through diplomatic genius.*!

Sorry, not got it from that (or the big hint in the title of this post)? We are of course talking about the eponymous Esther. Esther risked her own life in order to save the lives of all the Jews.

Admission is, as usual, free but any donation provided at the end of the performance will be given to Bexhill Dementia Action Alliance. More information on their work locally and nationally can be found here.

The play is written by Alan Young, songs composed by Dave Chamberlin.
The play is directed by Jacqueline Young.

The play will be performed at the following locations and times.

  • Saturday, 21st May – St Stephen’s Church, Bexhill at 5 p.m.
  • Sunday, 22nd May – St Peter’s Church, Bexhill at 10 a.m.
  • Friday, 27th May – St Mark’s Church, Bexhill at 7:30 p.m.
  • Saturday, 28th May – All Saints Church, Sidley at 3 p.m.
  • Sunday, 29th May – Christchurch Methodist Church, Bexhill at 10.30 a.m.

Letter of thanks to CV

It’s been great to finally be back amongst congratulations and present “Finding Hope” once again. It’s been a long time and we’re truly grateful to everyone whose attended the first three performances.

We’ve received this wonderful letter regarding the performance at Christchurch Methodist Church on 12/Dec/2021.

There’s still one more chance to catch “Finding Hope” at St John The Evangelist, St Leonards at 10:30 a.m. on 09/Jan/2022!

Wishing everyone a Happy Christmas
from all at Christian Voices!

Hope returns

Winter 2021/2022 sees the return of Christian Voices and our play Finding Hope!
A title that seems very apt in the current world situation.

After a break of two years we return with a play we first performed in Advent 2019. Hard to believe that the final performance this time will be in 2022.

The play is set at the time of the census and a group of friends living in Bethlehem were unaware that the birth of Jesus was about to happen.

Mark, one of the group, had recently become a widower. He was trying to cope with the loss of his wife. What would give him hope that his life still had meaning?


Written by Alan Young and directed by Jac Young from St Martha’s Church with music and songs by Dave Chamberlin.

The play will be performed on:-

  • Sunday, 28th November – St Peter’s Community Centre, Bexhill at 10 a.m.
  • Sunday, 5th December – Ninfield Methodist Church at 10.30 a.m.
  • Sunday, 12th December – Christchurch Methodist Church, Bexhill at 10.30 a.m.
  • Sunday, 9th January – St John The Evangelist, St Leonards at 10:30 a.m.

Keith Bridger, RIP

In the midst of a global pandemic, we are saddened to report this awful disease has taken one of our own; Keith Bridger, our friend and regular contributor.

Keith performed in five plays for Christian Voices. His varied roles included the Wounded Man aided by the Good Samaritan (“What would you do?”) and the father of the Prodigal Son (“Lost and Found”).

Keith will be remembered by all that knew him as a truly kind man of God.

Our love and prayers go to Keith’s family and friends.

Comment: Christian Voices’ play “very moving”

Christian Voices have received these wonderful comments from Paul & Bet on behalf of Ninfield Methodist Church about our latest play, “Finding Hope“.

Just a short line to thank you, & all the Christian voices group, for a lovely presentation of ‘Finding Hope’ yesterday morning.

The play was very moving and the theme was very original and touching. The songs were excellent, too.

We felt everything came together to lead us in a spirit-led service.

Well done & thanks again.

Paul & Bet (& all of us at Ninfield Methodist)

If you want to see “Finding Hope” then you’ve got one last chance this Sunday, 15th December at Christchurch Methodist Church, starting 10.30 a.m.

Finding Hope at the first Christmas

Christian Voices are proud to announce our Christmas Play, “Finding Hope“.

The play is set at the time of the census and a group of friends living in Bethlehem were unaware that the birth of Jesus was about to happen.
Mark, one of the group, had recently become a widower. He was trying to cope with the loss of his wife. What would give him hope that his
life still had meaning?

The play was written by Alan Young, the music composed by Dave Chamberlin and the lyrics written by Alan Young. It is directed by Jac Young.

The play will be performed on:-

  • Sunday, 1st December — St Mary’s Church, Westham at 9.45 a.m.
  • Sunday, 8th December — Ninfield Methodist Church at 10.30 a.m.
  • Sunday, 15th December — Christchurch Methodist Church at 10.30 a.m.

Join us, all are welcome. We’re sure the performances will be worth more than 9 points!

WUTH donations from Christian Voices top £1000

The last Christian Voices play, Gifts from God, was lucky enough to have most excellent audiences. Indeed most generous too.

After each of the six performances there was an opportunity for donations. Over all the performances we collected an absolutely astonishing £1,100.

Hard to say anything but thank you so, so much to all those that donated. Those donations went to Warming Up The Homeless, WUTH.

WUTH (registered charity, no. 1180417) helps people without a home, providing one meal, hot drink or change of clothes at a time. Their mission is the relief of poverty among the street homeless/rough sleepers through the provision of items to support basic needs such as sleeping bags, ground sheets, survival sheets, blankets, clothing, food and toiletries. They also aim to improve the individual’s welfare through emotional support, even if it’s just a smile or by signposting them to other services.

In recognition of the donation, WUTH have sent Christian Voices a letter and certificate.

More details about WUTH can be found on the WUTH website.
