Inspirational Movies At The Parish Centre

A series of no pressure, casual movie nights. Great films with inspiring messages about God, love, family, marriage, and more.

Wednesday 23rd January

6.15 pm | Courageous (M)

When tragedy hits home, four policemen are left wrestling with their hopes, fears, faith, and fathering. Can a newfound urgency help these dads draw closer to God … and to their children?

8.30 pm | Machine Gun Preacher (R) | ADULTS ONLY

When ex-biker-gang member Sam Childers makes the life-changing decision to go to Africa to help repair homes destroyed by civil war, he is outraged by the unspeakable horrors faced by the region’s vulnerable, especially the children. An inspirational movie about a rebel who found his cause. A genuine human drama that cuts you to the core with its heartbreaking, inspiring and action-packed story. Expect some scenes of graphic violence and bad language.

Sunday 27th January

6.15 pm | End Of The Spear (M)

Nate Saint is a pilot and Christian missionary who, with his family, lives and works in the jungles of South America near the Amazon. A meeting between Nate and the local tribesmen goes terribly wrong and Nate and four of his fellow missionaries are savagely murdered. In the final moments of his life, Nate is able to impart a message that bears fruit years later when Steve Saint, Nate’s son returns to continue the work his father started. End of the Spear is adapted from the true story.

Wednesday 30th January

6.15 pm | Fireproof (PG)

When he’s battling blazes, Fire Capt. Caleb Holt adheres to the old firefighter’s adage about never leaving your partner behind; back at home, it’s an altogether different story. Caleb and his wife Catherine have been married for seven years, but lately arguments over career, housework, finances, and outside interests have driven the once-happy couple hopelessly apart.

8.30 pm | Silence (R) | ADULTS ONLY

A religious epic set in the 17th century from Oscar-winning director Martin Scorsese. It’s complex, difficult, and at times gory, but it’s also magnificent and masterful. Expect some scenes of very graphic violence (crucifixion and torture etc). The films complex message about faith and the faithful and Scorsese’s powerful imagery sticks to your ribs but the actual watching of the movie is a notably dour experience, and a test of disquieting (and often, yes, boring) cinema. A long-term passion project for Scorsese that you must be in the mood for.

Sunday 3rd February

6.15 pm | Selma (PG)

A film which chronicles the tumultuous three-month period in 1965, when Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. led a dangerous campaign to secure equal voting rights in the face of violent opposition.

  1. Hi David & Crystal.

    Met Sam Childers at Noosa COC and he preached for the day a few months ago.

    Very inspiring story that just keeps on going.

    Well worth the watch.

    Much love & blessings from Ian Fielding-Smith of Noosa
