Rocks, by Theresa Ikoko and Claire Wilson

Film Club - Week 02

Talking points

At the end of the film, take time to write down your impressions. What moved you? What frustrated you?

  1. Did you recognise certain streets and places in the film? How connected to your community do you feel? For those who live in/know East London, was this a side of the city that you were aware of?
  2. Why do you think Shola (Rocks) is so wary of authority figures? Consider how you would have advised her as a friend and how this might be influenced by your own upbringing and cultural assumptions.
  3. Do you think Agnes did the right thing?
  4. If you’re not already aware of Krish Kandiah’s ministry ‘Home for Good’ take some time to research it and consider whether you would be interested in adoption.
  5. Consider how we, as individuals and as a community, might be able to support teenage girls growing up in London.
  6. The Bible says: ‘One who has unreliable friends soon comes to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.’ Proverbs 18:24. If you have friends like that, take time to thank God for their friendship and support, and perhaps send them a message to show your appreciation. If you feel like you are lacking friends ‘who stick closer than a brother’ think about how you can go about investing in the people in your life to cultivate those friendships.


We’re putting together a podcast where we discuss these questions and the film in more detail. If you’d like to share your thoughts with the rest of Film Club, please send them to [email protected]

Blessings and Woes

Sam Lomas 4th June 2023

In Luke chapter 6, Jesus teaches that following Him doesn’t mean we won’t suffer. But we can view suffering from a place of blessing rather than curse – knowing that we have a Saviour who not only endured the worst suffering, but promises us a new life, new hope, and new future with Him.


New Wineskins

Jo Bird 28th May 2023

In Luke chapter 5, Jesus uses parables to teach His followers not cling to old ways of thinking and living, but embrace the new life of God’s kingdom. In this talk, Jo looks at how we can let go of old ways to receive God’s transformative power in our daily lives.
