Eden Project

Claire McCollum visits the Eden Project in Cornwall, where founder Sir Tim Smit tells her how he created a garden paradise out of a clay pit. Claire speaks to one of the Eden Project’s gardeners to hear how she worships God whilst looking after the two million plants on site.

An open-air theatre stages a socially distanced performance of Jesus Christ Superstar, a musical based on the New Testament gospels, and a Christian cast member shares what it means to be involved in a performance that explores the life and death of Jesus.

JB Gill goes surfing with a man who came back to faith whilst catching waves, and who is now part of Christian Surfers UK – an organisation celebrating its 30th anniversary. We also visit a church in Newquay that has adapted its Sunday services during the pandemic by becoming England’s first drive-in church.
