I Can Only Imagine at the Rex Cinema, Elland

Posted on Updated on

Update: The Rex cinema in Elland has just added a 10:30am morning showing for the Christian film I CAN ONLY IMAGINE (PG) next Thursday 6 December as well as the 7:45pm evening showing which has already been announced.

The morning showing will be preceded by the theatre organist playing the cinema’s concert organ from 10:00am.

It’s the song that brings ultimate hope to so many … often in the midst of life’s most challenging moments. Amazingly, the song was written in mere minutes by MercyMe lead singer Bart Millard. In reality, those lyrics took a lifetime to craft.

The story is told in ‘I Can Only Imagine’(PG) showing at The Rex Cinema, Elland for one night only on Thursday 6 December, 7:45pm.

Although he found faith at a young age, life wasn’t easy for Bart. He leaned into an active imagination and his love of music as escapes from a troubled home life. As he grew older, Bart turned to football in hopes of somehow connecting with his abusive father. But a career-ending injury—combined with the vision of a teacher who saw unlimited potential—set Bart on a musical pathway.

Chasing a dream while running from broken relationships with his father and Shannon, his childhood sweetheart, Bart hits the road in an old, decrepit tour bus with his new band MercyMe—named for his grandmother’s favourite expression. With the guidance of a grizzled music-industry insider, the band begins a journey none of them could ever have imagined.

Directed by the Erwin Brothers (October Baby, Moms’ Night Out, and Woodlawn), I CAN ONLY IMAGINE stars J. Michael Finley, Madeline Carroll, Trace Adkins, Priscilla Shirer, with Cloris Leachman and Dennis Quaid.

A gripping reminder of the power of forgiveness,the inspiring Christian film ‘I Can Only Imagine’ beautifully illustrates that no one is ever too far from God’s love—or from an eternal home in Heaven.

Support the Cromwell Bottom Wildlife Group

Posted on Updated on

Cromwell Bottom Wildlife Group has ambitious plans and could use a little tractor to help them. They are working hard to make this local nature reserve a real haven for wildlife and a place for education and peaceful enjoyment for the whole local community.

As plans get bigger so do the tasks to undertake – and the tools and equipment just get heavier!

Unfortunately, they are the first to admit that they are not all youngsters so a lift with the bigger loads is definitely appreciated. The age range of our volunteers spans seven decades which forms a great blend of knowledge and experience with energy and enthusiasm and a wide range of skills. However, those with most time to give during the week tend to be people in their 60’s upwards, who are joined at the weekends by families, students and anyone else we can pull in!

They could make very good use of a small tractor to haul trailer loads rather than having to carry all our gear. There are several miles of tracks and paths around the 74 acres of the reserve – and as you can imagine in Yorkshire it’s not all flat, so just getting to a work site with all the necessary tackle is quite an effort sometimes. They could use the tractor with a trailer (already donated) for lots of jobs:

  • to get strimmers to the meadows
  • take a heavy pump and a generator to our dams and ponds
  • carry tools for path maintenance
  • cart bundles of trees for planting
  • carry all the equipment for our annual autumn cut in our huge reedbed – one of the most exhausting tasks of the year.

The group can cover the tractor’s running costs, insurance and necessary training from group funds and there is safe storage on site.

Please vote for the group – and give wildlife at Cromwell Bottom a helping hand – and you are always welcome to visit if you can!

To vote for them, visit the Aviva Community Fund website at https://community-fund.aviva.co.uk/voting/project/view/4-659.
