Video: Beautiful Witness | 1-5

About Beautiful Witness

Beautiful Witness is a wonderful collection of 10 short films exploring what it means for people to come to faith. These films capture a variety of contexts and traditions, offering reflections and stories of those involved in a number of ministries. The Beautiful Witness project was set up by a team of practitioners and practical theologians, the hope is that it will generate critical discussion and equip the Church in its witness to God’s love in Christ.

To aid discussion around the films Church Mission Society have produced a group resource. In this resource you will find an introduction to each film, discussion questions and reflective prayer.  Many thanks go to Felicity Walters, vicar of Hadfield and vicar of Charlesworth with Gamesley, who has worked with us on producing this.

The first five, below, describe the general patterns seen across the different interviews.
