KU offers a variety of opportunities to engage with life and faith through the arts.
If you’re not sure if it’s ‘your thing’, feel free to come for a coffee during the Convention and dip your toe in.
Every year, the Convention offers you the opportunity to come along and explore the Christian faith via the arts in the form of concerts, drama, poetry, story telling, film and much more.
There will be a packed programme this year. Keep an eye on the website for more updates:
A Turbulent Priest - From the creators of A Monk’s Tale and The God Particle comes a brand new show telling the amazing story of the murder of Thomas Becket. With jokes and songs, obviously. Bromance, bust-up and betrayals about faith, church and power. An ancient story for modern times.
