BREAD OF LIFE

A deeply moving and captivating performance for your church for Lent and Easter 2019.

Springs Dance Company is delighted to be returning with its much sought after and highly praised production Bread of Life, for churches, cathedrals, festivals and schools. A reflection on the last supper, Bread of Life celebrates the meal of bread and wine with Jesus, the ever present King. This Lent and Easter rediscover the living, breathing Bread of Life, through this stirring depiction of how God is building a community of love with Jesus himself at the centre.

“A brilliant show that all the family can enjoy. Speaks to all ages about the love of God and how Jesus reaches out to all.”

“It is difficult to put 'Bread of Life' into words. Profound. Beautiful. Moving. Incredible theology of grace and the ever watchful love of Jesus. Transformative and powerful. How attractive is Jesus. Thank you.”

Audience Feedback from Bread of Life

Springs would love to hear from anyone interested in hosting a performance of Bread of Life.
