A Glimpse of Glory
21 Aug 2011
6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Newtown Mission’s iconic Revelation Ceiling, by Kon Parris, will celebrate three years since its grand opening in August 2008 with a creative performance based on the book of Revelation.
A Glimpse of Glory is the creative initiative of Art Evangelist Amanda Hallihan, who has created an opportunity for viewers to engage with the book of Revelation in a fresh way.
The performance will feature contemporary dance and choreography by Corinne Urquhart of Emotive Arts and Helen Wright of Annandale Creative Arts centre, live music arranged by Jaymai Johnson and actor Niel Modra as the Apostle John.
A Glimpse of Glory, which is based on the Revelation Monologues by Marc Radar, will debut at Newtown Mission on Friday, August 19 at 8 pm. It will be followed by performances on August 20 at 8 pm and August 21 at 6 pm. Tickets are $10 (concession) and $15 (adult) when booked in advance or $20 at the door.
The Anniversary Celebrations will culminate on August 28 with an anniversary service at 9.30 am at Newtown Mission Chapel. Guest speaker, Dr Mark Stephens, from Wesley Institute, will highlight the contemporary significance of the book of Revelation and provide fresh insight.
