Celebrate the gifts of Arts & Entertainment by downloading our resource and ideas pack here.
We are grateful for the support of individuals, trusts, and churches who have encouraged our backstage work. After 30 years we have become a highly respected and dependable charity offering various support within the often closed world of the entertainment profession. If you would like to give a donation to our work please click here.
PRAY FOR US:
We need your prayers more than ever as those working in the entertainment profession face new and challenging times. We seek to encourage a Christian presence within the profession and offer support to those who have little or no faith. Here is a monthly diary of how you and your church can remember us in prayer.
