And There Was War (ATWW)
ATWW is a theatre production based on Revelation 12:7. Perceived through the eyes of faithful and fallen angels.
And There Was War explores the great controversy between good and evil and creatively depicts the
spiritual dilemma humankind is faced with and passionately presents God’s plan of salvation as the answer. At the end of every production the audience are empowered to ask life’s most important question. “Whose voice will you listen to ?" "Whose side will you choose?”Why do bad things happen to good people? If GOD is all powerful and all loving, why is there so much evil in the world?
The theatrical production And There Was War provides real answers to these age-old questions, leaving audiences with a deep and emotional connection to some of the Bible’s most pivotal characters.Learn More Who are we?

And There Was War is a project that has developed in ministry as it has grown in popularity. Starting as a one-act play exploring the reasons and affects of the fall of mankind, The ATWW stage play has developed and become an effective resource for providing a deeper understanding of Christ’s sacrifice and love. Seniors, youth, teens and young children have praised ATWW for its visual and relevant depictions of familiar bible stories that provide powerful insight into the spiritual warfare and the great
controversy between good and evil.
ATWW has had successful runs every year between 2011 and 2017 ATWW has already had a positive impact on hundreds of people.The venues where ATWW have been staged include; The Albany Theatre, Stratford Arts Circus, The Crescent Theatre and the Bernie Grants Art Centre and various other venues across the UK. See our photo gallery ATWW the story
And There Was War stage play takes you on a veritable journey through time. We start at Creation and follow a non-linear narrative intersecting and overlaying the struggles of a Heavenly home divided and the repercussions of how that plays itself out on Earth. We learn the reasons surrounding the division of loyalty that culminated in the rebellion and subsequent fall of a third of the angels. We see why Lucifer, Immanuel’s Bright Star felt it necessary to try and overthrow His throne and destroy mankind.
On earth we follow the emotional challenges of a pregnant Mary whose revelations disconcert those around her; we encounter a tempted Eve and a heartbroken Adam; we watch the fatal rivalry of brothers Cain and Abel; we behold the last-day faith of Noah and audiences find themselves being brought to tears by the brutality and sacrificial love of a crucified saviour. All of these famous
stories are theatrically interwoven to tell an inspiring story of conflict, sacrifice, eternal love, and ultimately, victory.
In his bid to overthrown the Creator, Lucifer, the Son of the Morning cajoles a third of the angels and begins a whispering campaign to increase his influence and gain control of Mankind. Deceived by his deceptions, human beings, Immanuel’s creative masterpieces are plunged into a war that was never their own. Now they are faced with the greatest decision in their lives…”whose side will I choose?”
Take a look at one of our promotional videos...More than just a play
ATWW is more than a play, more than something interesting to go and see, it's a ministry. The themes explored in And There Was War are as relevant and universal today as they were in the day of our first parents; loyalty or betrayal, honesty or deception, life or death. Imagine you have a friend or family member who has questions about what you believe. Imagine you have a young child who can't grasp the hidden meaning behind certain texts, now think of ATWW as a tool to explain those key points and deeper aspects of the Bible, things such as creation, why Lucifer waged war against God, the fall of man, How Sin entered the world, the spiritual battle that takes place for our lives daily, the plans the Devil has for us, the plans God has for us. This play provides an illustrated explanation and a reference point that has audiences referring back to time and time again. ATWW has been described as "Fundamental Bible stories and characters coming to life, a sermon with teeth, a visual bible study"!
"It was very touching, even though I'm 13, I cried because you made me realise the love God actually has for me and now I'm planning on being baptised" What we want to do
God has put it on our heart to perform ATWW up and down the country, throughout Europe and eventually worldwide and to keep it ongoing. With one goal in mind; to share the good news of God's plan of salvation and to make his children aware that the enemy is real, that spiritual warfare is real and that a wholehearted choice needs to be made for Him.
What can you do?
We are a small ministry that relies heavily on donations, sponsors and financial backing. Many secular organisations that usually provide funding to Theatre and the arts refuse to accept applications for work that promotes any religious agenda so we find ourselves at a disadvantage. However God tells us in His word to put our faith and trust in Him and not the world.
We need ongoing funding and support. So here's what you can do.
* Donate towards our fundraising efforts
* Become a sponsor
or an angel
* Pay a regular subscription amount to the ministry and gain member benefits (ask us how
* Link us to your church leaders who may be able to donate and support the cause
* Share this link
* Invite us to talk at your church
or event about ATWW
* Invite us
to do a programme/perform a scene from the play at your church or event
* Tell others about us and what we are trying to do
* Get in touch
to offer your skills and expertise to support the ministry
* Pray for us continuallyWhat else we need
1. We are looking for individuals based in every church to be a liaison person. So that when people attend the play and have questions, want to make commitments or need follow-up (and they will!) then there are people we can direct them to in every area who will be ready to provide studies, invite them to socials and to church.
Thus far we have received some amazing feedback and comments about what ATWW has done and how we have inspired and encouraged others to further their relationship with Christ. Your support would mean so much and will help us have a bigger influence and impact.Thank you!
We thank everyone who has already given in the past, who have bought tickets and merchandise and plan to support us again, thank you for your continued support and prayers x
