From the first word, Stefan captured the gathered listeners’ attention, as the Churches of the region were joined by the general public. Here was a Good Friday event, out in the shopping precinct, that was worth stopping to listen to. Truly memorable!

Danny Stupple, Chair
Churches Together in Eastleigh, Bishopstoke, Fair Oak & Horton Heath

Were I to attend a similar event in the future, it would be difficult to imagine anything surpassing this.

Nadine
St Nicholas’ Orthodox Church, San Anselmo, California, USA

A resounding success.

Jill Brooks
Trinity Methodist Church, East Grinstead

A great story, and an equally great performance…expect great things!

Tim Jupp
Founder, ‘Big Church Day Out’

A throwback to the travelling evangelists of the early church. This is how the good news should be preached.

Canon Billy Kennedy
President, UK Churches Together

Engaging and intimate. It was thrilling to re-live the miracles and the authority of the Son of God.

David Hewitt
‘Wellsprings’ Community, Edinburgh

Visually, aurally and experientially, this film is absolutely stunning, impacting, entertaining and 100% accessible to a diversity of audiences. I RECOMMEND you watch this and pass the Word around!

Dr Chan Abraham
Leadership International & Revival NOW!

My church group ABSOLUTELY LOVED it!! Praise the Lord that He can use I AM MARK in this amazing way. I can’t wait to see the next session!

House Church member

Gripping, authentic, and deeply moving. 

Chris Brockway
Team Leader, Christchurch Baptist Church

Sometimes it takes a living voice to make you hear the Bible for the first time -a voice that presents some saying or episode not as a stray fragment but as part of the rhythm and pace of a story that goes on gathering momentum. Mark’s gospel has just that kind of momentum, and this performance gives a memorably strong sense of it.

Rowan Williams
Formerly Archbishop of Canterbury

This presentation was nothing less than cathartic, embodying the emotions we often struggle with in our biggest challenges. I don’t know if other people have been brought to tears by your performance. But I’m going to assume I’m not the only one.

Olympiada Kane
Mill Valley, California, USA

Fabulous show. Absolutely wonderful.

Alan Gibson, Minister
Motherwell South Parish Church, Edinburgh Fringe 2022

I AM MARK makes the works and words of Jesus more real – a brilliant way to introduce him to your friends and neighbours.

Dr Richard Roberts
Gathering in the Holy Spirit (Rome), USA Charismatic Leaders Fellowship

Inspiring…a compelling, intense and emotive delivery that had everyone transfixed from start to finish. As something of an [Edinburgh] Fringe veteran, I can bear witness that this is not always a given.

Richard Purden
Scottish Catholic Observer

The gift God has given you for making scripture leap to life, and his love you communicate as you tell and retell his story is incredibly powerful and deeply touching.

Theatregoer
Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2022

This is not just a performance…it’s a gift of God’s love to all.

Maris O’Brien
Fordingbridge

Outstanding.  Inspirational.  I AM MARK would befit any performance space, even the grandest stage.

Tom Burden
Curate, St Mary’s Church, Fordinbridge

What a brilliant idea this is.

Gavin Calver
Evangelical Alliance

I AM MARK brings the story of Jesus to life in a unique and powerful way.

Fergus Scarfe, Regional Director
GOD TV

Using minimal props, I AM MARK brings Mark’s Gospel alive and releases the energy and vitality of his account of Jesus and his ministry. I hope online viewings go through the roof and open up the Gospel to a whole new audience. Congratulations!

Timothy Dakin
Bishop of Winchester

Quite inspirational and performed with such sensitivity… particularly the way Jesus was depicted: with gentleness, gravitas and quiet authority.

Counsellor
Huntingdon

An innovative, dramatic, presentation of the scriptures, just as they are – and one that is totally compelling. I have seen it on national television, in the local park and even in India. In every location the impact and effect has been stunning. You cannot imagine how powerful this is until you see it for yourself.

Peter Butt, Director
School of Ministries

A wonderful and refreshing retelling of Mark’s gospel. A truly inspiring letter to the church beautifully portrayed by Stefan Smart. He doesn’t flinch from being challenging and direct. An ideal resource for our times. Highly recommended.

David Robinson, Artistic Director
Searchlight Theatre Co.

Hugely relevant and powerful.

Steve Lee
Miracle Street

An impressive feat of the memory and a truly immersive experience. The story of Jesus as you’ve never heard it before.

Emma Fowle
Premier Christianity Magazine

I was just ‘there’. It broke my heart.

Audience member
St Nicholas Church, San Anselmo, California, USA

I AM MARK shouldn’t be seen as a performance or even as a feat of memory to be marvelled at (all those words!), but as communication filled with love, compassion and power.

Gill Escott
Dance Instructor, Hampshire
Very moving, bringing me much closer to God through the life and ministry of Jesus.
What an outstanding and awe-inspiring way to hear the Gospel!
Audience members
St Marie RC Cathedral, Sheffield

Magnificent! Stefan Smart is a master in the art of biblical storytelling, in a way that is sure to reach seekers and believers alike..He is  trustworthy, as his focus is not just on his art but on communicating the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Archpriest Stephan Meholick
Rector, St. Nicholas Orthodox Church San Anselmo, CA USA

Enthralling! Letting go of intellectual engagement, I got immersed in a dynamic, moment by moment encounter with the Living Jesus. It made all other public reading of Scripture dull and second-hand in comparison.

Canon Marion Syms
Portsmouth Cathedral

There was not a murmur in the room as the inmates watched this unique performance.  Several commented afterwards that it had a real impact on them personally.  “Totally different to anything I’ve ever experienced,” said one. “When is he coming back?” was the general cry.

Lesley Mason, Managing Chaplain
HMP Send

Stefan’s presentation of Mark was captivating. It felt urgent and immediate and was crystal clear.

Daniel Goodman
Team Leader, City Church Cambridge

This performance of Mark’s Gospel awakens a new way of hearing and absorbing the words and stories of Jesus. I found myself really engaged and so inspired that it felt like I was encountering the Gospel for the first time. It takes you deeper into the life of Jesus, and is an excellent resource for long time believers as well as those who are on the fringe of faith.

Jenny Baker
National Leader CELEBRATE, UK Catholic Charismatic Renewal

What a fabulous start to Hope Theatre Cafe, Plymouth! Thank you to Stefan Smart for a riveting performance of I AM MARK – which totally brought the gospel to life. This was a truly engaging, interactive performance – Stefan had the audience eating of of his hand (almost literally at one point!) Brilliantly directed by Lisa Gilmour, Stefan’s use of space and the infamous chair are inspiring.
