For the fishermen who sail on her, the Sea of Galilee provides plenty of fish and plenty of stories. Local fishermen Andrew and Simon have set out to be the best fishermen on the waters, even in the face of their fishing rivals, the Sons of Thunder. Until one day a strange man appears and blows everyone's efforts out of the water, changing the Fishermen’s lives forever.
Fisherman’s Tail is an hour long musical, perfect for the whole family, showing the life, death and resurrection of Jesus through the eyes of the fishermen disciples, as they discover what it means to be fishers of men. Featuring live music with actor-musicians, and a host of hearty songs, Fisherman’s Tail is a fun-filled musical experience not to be missed.

I'm trying to stitch together our stories... yours and mine, his and hers so we might become us. I haven't met you yet, our paths may someday cross. Shelter and trees, Nigerian prints and pockets torn. Our hearts worn once on sleeves to find ourselves. The illiterate mother that learned to write her sons name. Armenia to Afghanistan, Pleasant hill to Paris we find perhaps our stories stitch beautifully together.×

Chapman Hamborg was born and raised in Huntington Beach. Homeschooled with his four brothers, he was allowed the freedom to pursue his love of art from a young age. After taking classes locally at Terra Arts Foundation and Laguna College of Art and Design, Chapman moved to Florence, Italy to study classical realist painting, drawing and sculpting. During his four years in Italy he also taught beginning drawing and Artistic Anatomy at Angel Academy of Art. He has since been awarded first place in the international Art Renewal Center scholarship competition, taken part in the prestigious Hudson River Fellowship, and sculpted an anatomical heart for the cover of the #1 album, Have it All by Bethel Music.
Trained in such a variety of mediums, Chapman’s work shows his desire for experimenting with materials, themes and techniques. His work reflects his love for creation, both in nature and the human figure. In his most recent work, Chapman has been exploring the intimacy between mother and child.
Chapman now lives with his wife Hannah and son Shepherd in Huntington Beach, where he works as a professional artist on commissions and personal projects, teaches a variety of art classes and is the Creative Director at Terra Arts Foundation.×
I’m Jago and I have been illustrating children’s books since graduating from Falmouth 14 years ago . I live and work from my home in North Cornwall with my lovely family.
I have produced illustrations for over 50 children’s books and a few magazines, as well as a TV show or two, some logos and album covers. Recently I have also participated in a series of exhibitions and signed prints of my work are now available in galleries and shops around the UK and beyond. My wife and I have recently been working hard to expand the range of illustrated products on our online shop.
Most of my children’s book work has been for publishers in the US as my agent (Ronnie Herman) is based in New York. I’m probably best known for my work with New York Times Bestselling author Sally Lloyd-Jones. Our books have sold more than 2.6 million copies and won a tidy stack of awards.
I work entirely digitally using a combination of an iMac and Photoshop and an iPad Pro and Apple Pencil. All my prints are produced using pigment ink and archival paper to ensure excellent lightfastness.
