Spiritual truth and devotion have always been expressed through drama. From the preaching of the prophets, to the medieval Mass, dramatic scripts, props and words have been used to draw people into transforming encounter with God.

The following links will lead you to a selection of scripts that have been tried and tested in worship settings and that are designed to fit comfortably into the flow of worship without taking over the entire liturgical experience.


  • General
    • You’re Not Like Me

      A monologue exploring the struggles and joys of being different.

    • Taste And Experience And Know

      A short liturgical drama for Holy Communion. Liturgical drama is a combination of performance and congregational participation. For more information about this form see the “Liturgical Drama” page.

    • Meeting With God

      A fun script that explores why we come to worship and our need to connect with others. It works especially well as a call to worship.

    • If Only I Could Start Again

      A short drama exploring feelings of guilt and regret. It is written to pose questions, not offer answers.



  • Church Calendar
    • The Proposal

      Not making a decision is still making a decision. A metaphorical drama for the Covenant Service.

    • The Foolishness Of Christmas

      Another fun Christmas script for use with children.

    • God’s Gift Of Life

      A simple children’s liturgical drama for Pentecost.

    • Facing The Darkness

      A dramatic form of the Tenebrae service, including congregational responses. Requires four men and three women. Also, you will notice on this script that there are two possible places for communion to be received, one before the drama is performed and one, which is my preference, after the drama (although this departs from the usual Tenebrae practice of having nothing after the final reading and relighting of the central candle).

    • Colours And Kings

      A fun children’s musical for Christmas using well-known Christmas Carols.


  • Liturgical Drama
    • Taste And Experience And Know

      A short liturgical drama for Holy Communion.

    • God’s Gift Of Life

      A short, simple script of praise and thanksgiving for Pentecost. While it does not need to be performed by children, it was written with children in mind and is very powerful when children lead the prayer.

    • Facing the Darkness

      A dramatic form of the Tenebrae service, including congregational responses. Also, you will notice on this script that there are two possible places for communion to be received, one before the drama is performed and one, which is my preference, after the drama (although this departs from the usual Tenebrae practice of having nothing after the final reading and relighting of the central candle).
