The next film evening will be tomorrow night Monday 11th November at 7.00pm in the lower rear halls. In view of this date being that of Armistice day 2019, the one film “They shall not Grow Old”” will be shown rather than the normal selection of short films. This film, directed by Peter Jackson (of The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings fame) has re-mastered Imperial War Museum footage into an emotional and compelling documentary of World War 1 soldiers telling their stories. It was first shown on BBC on Armistice Day 2018 and was widely acclaimed. Please come along and watch this 90 minute film and enjoy a blether and light refreshments afterwards.
"Seekers and Searchers' meet every Wednesday in the Small Halls to share worship and fellowship as we discuss and share our faith, and is open to everyone, so if you are free any Wednesday please come along and join us. We meet from 12 - 12.30 for lunch. Blethers and catch up from 12.30 - 1pm. Worship and sharing from 1 - 1.30ish, then our bible theme and discussion from 1.30ish - 2pm. This sessions topic is entitled Living in Christ. This Wednesday 13th November we will be reading John 17: 20 - 26 and thinking about " Leaving a Legacy" If you are unable to join us here are a few questions we will be discussing: Suppose you could drop in on your church one hundred years from now. What would you hope to find? If you were praying for your great-great grandchildren, what would you ask God for? As you picture Jesus speaking the words of this prayer to his Father on your behalf, what do you find particularly compelling?
