Everyone at the Fringe is inventive, but one group is very much associated with that in my mind, Les Enfant Terribles. Formed in 2002 by James Seager and Oliver Lansley, they have brought many shows to the Fringe over the years, from psychological World War One horror, through Piratosaurs, to 2016’s vaudevillans;a classic murder caper mixed with a …
 
In Luke 24, the resurrected Jesus encountered two of His followers on the road to Emmaus, culminating in a dramatic moment of revelation around the meal table. Before He opened their eyes to who He was, Jesus stepped into their disappointment and opened the Scriptures to them, leading them to invite Him in.…
 
Few passages in Scripture are as challenging to read as this one. We sometimes stop it short and only read what is palatable to us, or we don’t read it at all, choosing blissful ignorance instead, because we find it troubling. Neither are good approaches; we must read it all. Some think this passage to be a herald for social action, others are trou…

An artist at heart with a long and varied list of interests, Jeff Innocent went on a stand-up comedy course in 1996 – led by alt-comedy legend Tony Allen – and he’s not stopped since then. Jeff has carved out a place in the UK stand-up scene like no other, as well as working as a writer and actor. In 2006 he brought the show Eco-worrier to the Edin…
 
‘Are you envious because I am generous?’. Such a question has the ability to cut all of us right to our core, it exposes our jealous hearts, our resentful spirits, our entitled ways, our wounds and our disappointments. The Kingdom of God, as we have learned, is unexpected, is upside-down, is not measurable by the world’s standards and yet so often …
 
The story of Jesus meeting Zaccheus centres on an invitation and a meal. The result is heart transformation, generosity, and a greater understanding of the largeness of the mission of Jesus to seek and save the lost.As Christians we must enjoy the hospitality of Jesus for ourselves – the gospel is good news! His example teaches us what true hospita…
 
2014 saw Australian comic Celia Pacquola return to Edinburgh for her fourth Fringe Show. ‘Let Me Know How It All Worked Out’ looked at the world of psychics and their promise of foretelling the future; specifically one who said she would never have children. (Spoiler… congratulations are in order, Celia and her partner had their first child earlier…
 
The Kingdom of God is costly. Jesus speaks so strongly in this passage around the theme of wealth and it can be hard for us to hear, lots of us (but not all) live fairly well-off lives and in our society there is a growing chasm between the rich and the poor. Jesus is saying something so subversive here, it would be commonplace in Judaism that rich…
 
In this episode, we hear from senior lecturers Guy Fletcher at the School of Philosophy and Marc Geddes at the School of Politics, who share good practice by examining the successes and challenges of their student-nominated courses at The University of Edinburgh. This is the third episode of our Teaching Awards series, which features reflective con…
 
The world of H P Lovecraft is one that many people have explored, both the horror of the writing and the horror of the man. In 2015 Shedload Theatre looked at the former, in an inventive show called The Statement Of Randolph Carter. The big moment in the show is the Foley work. The show is presented as a radio play, and that means lots of sound eff…
 
In looking at the story of Moses being called by God, Terry Virgo helps us identify and deal with areas that could be holding us back from fully serving God and seeing His power work through us.

Karis continues our Meals with Jesus series looking at the story of Jesus going to eat at Simon the Pharisee’s house – how does this story show us what makes a good, true welcome?

The Kingdom of God is deeply merciful but with God’s mercy comes God’s justice. Matthew is showing us here how Jesus is not interested in cheap grace. From Peter’s seemingly innocent question following through to the parable of the servant and the debt, we see that forgiveness is to be given freely and abundantly and that resentment harbours deeply…
 
The Fringe is not just a recruiting vehicle for Live at the Apollo, there’s more to comedy, more to the Fringe, than that. You can have theatrical performances that bring the art of clowning and farce to the stage alongside pathos and examination of the human condition. In 2014, Little Soldier Productions brought its first production to the Fringe,…
 
We’ve seen over the last two weeks the work of mystery and the work of the small and unexpected and these same themes continue here. These two parables teach us how the Kingdom of God spreads – just like the tiny mustard seed and hidden yeast, the Kingdom of God grows and spreads, it pervades society and permeates the whole world! How can our faith…
 
Luke begins our new preaching series, Meal With Jesus, by looking at what meals meant in Jewish culture, and how Jesus used them to connect with unexpected people, by studying Levi’s feast from Luke 5:27-32.Here are the quotes Luke mentions during his preach:Definition of hospitality: “using your Christian home in a daily way that seeks to make str…

In the present, the way that God's Kingdom works is often unexpected. It can be messy, often doesn't work to the timescales we would like, and while we would like to see evil fully rooted out our experience is that God works in amongst the brokenness of this world, and good and evil often grow together. The promise of the kingdom of God is that thi…
 
I’ve talked before about the podcast archive giving us a window into the past when the recognisable names of today were still figuring their artistic life out. That’s very much the case with Adam Kay. With ‘The London Underground’ song becoming the breakout viral hit of 2005 (or at least as viral as you could manage in 2005) he started his appearan…

The Kingdom of God is mysterious, we are trusting in a work that is unseen and not within our control. This parable speaks of small and unseen beginnings that result in a wonderful harvest. Jesus’ ministry didn’t look like the sort of kingdom-of-God-movement people were expecting, it was small and unknown in the beginning and yet the miraculous har…

This week we’re back to 2012 once more, as former Perrier nominee Sarah Kendall returned to the Fringe after a five-year absence. “Get Up, Stand Up” (or is it “Get Up, Stand-Up”, how delightfully interpretive) takes on a more storytelling approach than a bang-bang-jokes routine, and Kendall’s acting chops wer brought to the fore in an hour of pitch…
 
To be a disciple of Jesus is to make disciples of Jesus. We continue our Great Commission People series as Chris looks at how we have been commissioned to call unbelievers to become disciples, and to teach believers how to follow Jesus.Chris Rawson
 
God is holy and just, and invites us to be people of justice who fight for freedom from injustice. Jesus consistently draws near to the marginalised and oppressed. He ushers in this ministry to the most vulnerable. The victims of injustice need our consistent loving mercy as we respond to Jesus' call to love people as He loves them. In what situati…

The most important thing about us, before anything else, is that we are followers of Jesus! Like the first disciples, we are called to follow Jesus, we get to respond to that call by yielding to his plans for us and taking time to listen to who he is pointing us towards, because this life is not just for us, we are disciples who make disciples. How…
