Christian Superstore Timaru, 102 Stafford Street, Timaru:   Our next community movie night is on the 1st May at Wilson Street Baptist’s Lascelles Hall from 6.30pm. The movie of “Return to the Hiding Place ” is a biographical look at Dutch Resistance and Corrie ten Boom’s family’s support of hiding refugees. A great journey into the power of faith and commitment for God’s purpose.  We recommend this movie for adults and mature audiences due to the images depicted within this WW2 movie.
