Forming character through the insights of literature, contemporary culture and Scripture.
Movies can focus you on what really matters in life, getting you in touch with the story you are living, or would like to live. The West End Movie Group began in 2008 as a way to explore questions of faith and meaning through watching films. We watch a movie in someone’s home every two months and explore the deeper themes afterwards over dessert. Many of us come from a Christian perspective, but our hope is that any faith perspective, including atheism, is welcome. We are grateful for all who come.
