So far “The Gap” has explored issues of food, identity, money, life and death.
Held at St Nicholas Church in Durham Market Place, each evening began with drama and song, then Bishop Paul and other guests took part in a debate around key issues.
He explained the idea of “The Gap” is to have a relaxed atmosphere where people feel confident to ask tough questions and voice their opinions, despite others having opposing views.
Before the start of the first evening’s show Bishop Paul said: “We want to engage people in thinking about the Christian faith, areas of life and living and show how the Christian faith is relevant.
“That is why we are tackling subjects such as food and money, so we try to help people see that the Christian faith is about all of life.”
The Diocese of Durham said the event was in partnership with Footprints Theatre Company which gave the show a “soap opera” feel.
Bishop Paul said: “There are several twists along the way, each night it’s different and only comes to light as people watch the themed soap area unfold.
“The other twist is that the audience supplies all of the questions that we discuss via the audience in the show, via Twitter and via text.
“We don’t know what the questions are going to be so we respond to people and sometimes those questions can be quite challenging.”

WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
What is your response?
If you are not a Christian, and would like to become a Christian. Simply say - "LORD Jesus, thank you for forgiving me of my SINs, today I am deciding to follow you. Accept me into your family, in Jesus name I pray. Amen "
