The Gospel According to Hollywood

Morgan Freeman is to host a new series about God

This year we are mixing things up a little on some Sunday mornings. Instead of doing the same thing every week, we are giving over one Sunday morning a month to ‘doing church differently’. The morning events will include food, friendly conversation and an opportunity to think about the big questions of ‘Life, the Universe and Everything’ without the hymns, prayers and practices that most people associate with ‘going to church’.

Since we’re in the middle of hosting a Film Festival at Open Door, the first event will be on 16 February 2020 and we’ll be thinking about what Hollywood says we should be demanding from life, and whether the expectations of the film industry match up to the promises of God and the reality of life.

Come along to Open Door with an open mind and even an open heart and we would be delighted to hear your opinions on what life is all about and whether Hollywood has got it right!

“Turning Disability into Possibility” – The inspirational Bart Gee visits the Deepings

This Thursday, 4th July, at 7.15pm, Open Door will be hosting an evening with inspirational speaker Bart Gee when he will talk about his life, his faith and his new book “Breaking Limits”.

Bart Gee is a Christian. He was born with a disability called Arthrogryposis which basically means that he has weak muscles and stiff joints. Doctors said he would never walk and they didn’t even know if he would have the strength to sit up. They also said there was no chance of playing the piano and no-one knew if he would even have the strength to press a key down. He started playing piano at 5 years old and have gradually been able to do more and more.

Despite his disability, Bart CAN play the piano and he has completed triathlons, open water swims and many other activities the doctors believed were impossible.

For more information about Bart and his new book visit his website or better still, come and hear Bart tell his story on Thursday 4th July at the Open Door Church, Spalding Road, Deeping St James PE6 8NJ.
