The award-winning comedy writer brings his serious and humorous one-man show to Otford
We all know Jesus turned water into wine. It’s his most famous miracle! Ever wondered why?
In his hilarious ‘stand-up theology’ special, James Cary asks that very question. Find out along with how Jesus narrowly averted a Zombie Apocalypse (but caused another one), how the calling of Moses at the burning bush really went down and how you might know more Aramaic than you thought you did.
Jokes and observations mixed with theological insights in this bizarrely biblical blend from a BBC sitcom writer and amateur theologian that has been delighting audiences across the UK from 2021-23. Suitable for all ages
Saturday 16th March 2024 starting at 7pm
Tickets including interval refreshments £10 (£5 for under 18s) available here

James Cary is also a Christian, with tendencies towards Calvinism (see? I warned you he was odd). He is also a member of the House of Laity of the General Synod for the Church of England for the Diocese of Bath & Wells, and a Lay Representative of Synod on The Archbishops’ Council. He has a degree in Theology from the University of Durham, preaches at his church from time to time and has no plans to become a vicar.
