Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: the old has gone, the new is here! (2 Cor 5:17 NIV)
We are delighted to welcome Roger Jones and his Christian Music Ministries team to St James again – for the 5th time, in fact – as we participate in another of his wonderful musicals.
The conversion of St Paul
St Paul’s conversion on the Damascus road (Acts 9) was a defining moment in the history of the Church. A man zealous in his persecution of early Christians was transformed into a person who was responsible for writing much of the remainder of the New Testament. In this way, he profoundly influenced the thought and theology of the Christian faith over the ensuing 2000 years.
The most life-changing experience any human being can have is an encounter with Jesus Christ. As Paul himself put it: “If anyone is in Christ, that person is a new creation”.
Apostle – the musical
Roger’s Musical is a re-telling of Paul’s story.
It was written in the 1970s for his School Choir and Sunday School Anniversary and, though this version is essentially the same, it is accompanied by a new recording and it concludes with a new, extra item: a new setting of Timothy Dudley-Smith’s hymn about the conversion of St Paul.
The running time for the performance is about 45 minutes. The story is narrated (between the songs) by Barnabas. There are solo singing parts for Paul and Ananias, as well as other parts for Disciples and Priests.
