Welsh church features in second Holy Habit film exploring fellowship

St Davids unity film and chatSt David’s Uniting Church in Pontypridd features in the second of a short series of films exploring each theme featured in Andrew Roberts’ book, Holy Habits.

Directed by Kevin Snyman, Mission Enabler for West Midlands Synod, the ‘Holy Habit of Fellowship’ is seen in action through a ‘film and chat’ afternoon held at St David’s with the aim of bringing people together.

Holy Habits is one of the key resources for Walking the Way: Living the life of Jesus today, the URC’s focus on lifelong Christian discipleship and mission.

The Revd Phil Wall, Minister of St David’s, said: ‘Fellowship is about meeting God in one another and certainly in our film afternoons we have seen glimpses of that divine spark in conversations, laughter and the tears we share.’

Films shown during the special afternoon often focus on a range of Christian themes which can be discussed at the end of the screening.

‘I encourage you to try something like the film and chat afternoons,’ continued Mr Wall. ‘And you may well see friendships and faith deepen across your church and beyond.’

Earlier this year, the Walking the Way team produced a resource, ‘watching the screen’, that contains a variety of film suggestions for churches or groups wanting to hold their own ‘film and chat’ event.

Films such as: Chocolat, The Way, Calvary, and Philomena provide opportunities for great discussions.

Each of the films in the Holy Habits short film series feature an introduction by Mr Roberts, who in this film, says: ‘Out of all the holy habits, fellowship is the one I personally find most challenging.’ Watch the film to find out why.

The Holy Habits booklets are available to buy individually or as a full pack. Visit the URC Shop for details.
