In April 2005 twenty-five Melanesian Pilgrims journeyed to England. The party of Religious (21 Melanesian Brothers, two Melanesian Sisters and two Sisters of the Church) were invited by the dioceses of Chester and Exeter "to share their faith in the Gospel in a distinctive blend of drama, song and dance. 40 days in Chester culminated with a dramatised presentation of `The Passion of Our Lord' in the Cathedral on 10 June. With its message of death, resurrection and hope, the drama echoes the real life experiences of the community in the recent ethnic tensions". While in England the Melanesians also visited London where they gave a performance of the Prodigal Son at Lambeth Palace for the Archbishop of Canterbury and Anglican Communion Office staff. They also performed the Passion of Our Lord at St. Martin in the Fields (photo page 3).
