FLOURISH in SPIRIT offers Contemplative Drama Workshops for Churches and Christian Organisations.
Recently started by Julie Jackson, FLOURISH is a new Christ-centred ministry which seeks to encourage the use of Drama and Creativity in Church and Society.
Flourish’s Drama Workshops are designed to encourage you to FLOURISH in spirit, soul and body, FLOURISHing in the presence of the Holy Spirit as you meditate on scripture and spend time with God through Drama.
Flourish in Spirit Contemplative Drama Workshops focus on the creative processes of drama as a means to explore and express our relationship with God rather than just using drama for performance. Drama Workshop is an ideal vehicle for:
- prayer & contemplation
- exploring the Bible
- healing & wholeness
- the use of prophecy.
Flourish in Spirit Workshops are led by Julie Jackson.
