Come watch a wonderful cinematic depiction of Martin Luther’s life in the newly refurbished St Mark’s Anglican Church, at 7:30pm on Thursday 19th October.
Celebrating 500 years since the Protestant Reformation.
On 31 October 1517 Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses to the Castle Church door in Wittenburg, Germany. This protest against the abuses of the Catholic Church set in motion a revolution that transformed not only the Church, but also Western culture as we know it. The invention of the printing press allowed Luther’s writings to be broadcast around the known world so that the common people could take up their cause against the established Church.
Luther rediscovered the wonderful truth of the gospel – that salvation is found by faith in Christ alone, through grace and he made this available to all by translating the Bible into the common language of the people. He also revitalized the arts and music and a love and joy for life and simple pleasures.
Entry is free, with a light supper provided afterwards. Small donations for supper welcome.
