‘After the Flood: the church, slavery and reconciliation’ is a new feature documentary from The Movement for Justice and Reconciliation (MJR). It exposes the roots of church complicity in the slave trade – with its many legacy issues still present in our society – and shows the route to reconciliation. If we are serious about racial justice being an integral part of our Christian mission, this film can be a step on a learning journey toward carrying out that mission with renewed integrity.
After the recent London premiere a comment on Twitter said: “This film needs to be seen by every church in the land.” CTE General Secretary, Bishop Mike Royal, has said it “represents a watershed moment for the church.”
Tickets are now available for a pre-release Manchester screening on July 12 at Methodist Central Hall, which will be followed by a Q&A*. Click here to book.
