Church on the Corner

Church on the Corner is an Anglican church in an old pub in Islington, London. Service at 7pm every Sunday.

This evening we are watching the film ‘Into great Silence’. A remarkable piece of cinema, probably not an easy watch, but a telling a insight into the lives of the Carthusian Monks.

It sounds more like an endurance test than entertainment, yet this one-of-a-kind experience proves surprisingly immersive.

Read the reviews here on Rotten Tomatoes.

It will start at 7pm upstairs in the Chapel – if you are late, come in quietly!

One thought on “Into Great Silence

    Yes. A retreat in miniature, this film. Beautifully human, hence divine. I have enjoyed thinking back on it. I loved the comment about the Holy Spirit being like the sun on one, unique and subjective … if that was it….. The film reminded me of another film “No Greater Love” about a silent order of nuns in Notting Hill……. which I recommend.
