We will show our documentaries as part of the West End Festival, some of which have links with Wellington Church.
Tuesday 14th June:
‘Action for Peace – Sally Beaumont’ (22 mins), which is an interview with Sally; ‘Christianity is about relationship, hope – Rev Bruce Keeble’ (26 mins), in which Rev Keeble, the minister at Hillhead Baptist Church in the 1990s, talked about his childhood experience in China, including his captivity by the Japanese during the war; ‘The bird, the tree, the bell and the fish of Glasgow’ (33 mins), in which David Sinclair’s sermon at Wellington on the rhyme was quoted.
Wednesday 15th June:
‘Glasgow West Housing Association: an unofficial story’ (41 mins), which is a story about GWHA’s beginning as Hillhead HA, which was established in 1978 by Wellington Church and Hillhead Baptist Church, with reflection from Jim Michael and Janet Craig; and ‘Live a tradition in Maramures, Romania’ (26 mins), in which you will see Jim Brown, who took us to this northerly part of Romania and introduced to us a local folk singer living in a traditional timber house.
Thursday 16th June:
