Come To The Table

Fairy lights, ballet dancers, actors… not the usual things to be found in our church, but this week it was transformed for two nights to host Mosaic Art’s production of ‘Come To The Table’. This musical by Ken Medema and adapted by Nicholas and Andrea Young was a rich offering of music, singing, dancing, dialogue and decoration and a modern-day interpretation of two of Jesus’ parables – the Great Feast and the Prodigal Son (or in this case the Prodigal Daughter).

An enormous cast of performers was made up of actors, singers and musicians from local churches including our own, together with children from the Jacaranda Ballet School and choirs from our very own Catholic primary schools, St Bernadette’s and St Patrick’s. Wow – what a celebration of God’s gifts as well as a fabulous example of the power of community and prayer. It was entertaining and thought-provoking, uplifting and moving, dazzling and heartwarming.

In the interval we were all invited to join in the party with a feast of delicious refreshments and more entertainment. Everyone had a smile on their face!

Fr Anthony described the production in just three words: ‘Angelic, Blissful and Catchy’.

A big thank you to Mosaic Arts and the performers, to Fr Anthony for allowing the church to be used in this wonderful way and to everyone behind the scenes who helped with front-of-house, refreshments, sound, interval entertainment, setting up and tidying up. It was a supreme team effort and an example of church collaboration at its very best.
