SOUL SUPPERS FILM SERIES

Please join us as we explore our shared life of faith through a series of thoughtful, inspiring and challenging films on Wednesday evenings during Lent. A light supper of soup, sandwiches and salad will be provided (or you can BYO). Just come and share in fellowship and reflection.

We will gather at 6pm for supper in the sanctuary. Films will begin promptly at 6.30 and will be followed by an informal discussion time. The evening will wrap up at 8.45.

Invite your friends!

FEBRUARY 21: I’LL PUSH YOU. A deeply moving and challenging documentary. Living with a neurological disease, Justin proposes the impossible to a life-long friend, Patrick: a pilgrimage across the 500 mile trail known as El Camino de Santiago. In a wheelchair.

FEBRUARY 28: BABETTE’S FEAST. Academy Award winner. On the remote coast of Denmark in the 19th century, a mysterious refugee from France’s civil war enters the lives of two spinster sisters living in an austere fishing village—and embracing an equally austere form of Christianity. A startling intersection of lives and history culminates in a true feast of grace.

MARCH 7: SISTER ACT. Half way through Lent we lighten the atmosphere. Whoopi Goldberg provides a whole new take on "the singing nun" as a lounge singer under police protective custody who is placed in a conservative convent. One of the most successful musical films ever made provides the joyous opportunity to reflect on the life of faith in the world as we find it.

MARCH 14: THE SHACK. Based on the best-selling book, starring Octavia Spencer. Following a family tragedy, a man spirals into a deep depression—causing him to question his most fundamental beliefs. A mysterious letter leads him on a spiritual journey of healing, hope and transformation.

MARCH 21: JESUS OF MONTREAL. Winner of Grand Jury Prize at Cannes, and a Golden Globe and Academy Award nominated film, For more than 40 years the annual Passion Play has been a fixture at the famous Montreal basilica, but it has become dated and attendance is waning. Deciding that a change is needed, the priest in charge invites a young actor in Montreal to update the play. Recruiting a young and inventive cast, the show becomes a huge success, despite the disapproval of his employer. However, gradually and inevitably, the actors find that the life of Christ has an extraordinary impact on their real life existence.
