CYM Musical The Crusader – First Rehearsal: Tuesday 10 March 6.30-8.30pm at St James the Great Church, Petts Wood

Thank you to all those who attended our open auditions over the last few weekends, it was fantastic to see how much talent we have in our deanery community! We are still looking for Singers, Musicians, Technicians & Volunteers to join the chorus, orchestra or backstage team for this exciting new musical, The Crusader.

A tale of faith and conversion, exploring the question of how we effectively tackle injustice. This is a story of William, a C12th Knight, making his journey home from the Third Crusade to his wife, Thea, and to Gloucester, where his people are suffering under an oppressive regime. But then an uprising begins… This is a brand new musical with an original story and score, which we plan to perform this Summer 2020. The poster is here. The first rehearsal takes place on Tuesday 10 March, 6.30-8.30pm at St James the Great Church, Petts Wood. Contact us on: or simply come along on 10 March. We look forward to having you with us!

Update: Faith in Action (Year 4) – Our 2020 candidates and Shoe box appeal

We welcomed our new 2020 Faith in Action candidates for a wonderful first Reflective Session on 15 March at St Joseph’s Church. It was an amazing afternoon whose theme ‘We love because we are loved’ allowed us to reflect on God’s love for each one of us, through service, Scripture and the lives of inspirational figures, St Maximilian Kolbe and St Nicholas. We were delighted and proud of our candidates and their families who donated toys and shoeboxes for our Shoebox appeal – at the end of our session, 18 shoeboxes were delivered to the Early Intervention Centre (Bromley Children’s Project), where they will be given directly to children who we hope will benefit greatly from these thoughtful gifts. Well done everyone!! Our next session is on Saturday 21 March (3-5.45pm) at St Joseph’s Church, Plaistow Lane, Bromley and we are delighted to be joined by representatives from St Christopher’s Hospice.

Take a look at our ‘Faith in Action Bromley Deanery’ videos on YouTube, Facebook @bromleydeanery.  The poster is here. You can find out more and register online through our website or by emailing:
