Community Movie Night:   The Prayer Box  This touching family film reminds us that God never loses sight of us, not for one moment.  With his sister suffering from, terminal    cancer, a young boy takes it upon himself to get God’s attention, answering prayers of members of his Church in hopes that God will heal her.  The film does not hide the fact that life is full of pain, suffering, loss. and betrayal, yet it somehow manages to take these themes and find God in the midst of it all.

Date :  31 Oct 2020  ~  Doors open: 6.30pm   Movie starts: 7pm

Cost:  Individual:  $7  Couple: $10  Family : $20
