Twelve is a collection of three-minute films featuring 12 individuals from across south-east Wales who share their personal stories of faith and pose questions which relate to their personal experiences. It was officially launched at Showcase Cinema, Nantgarw on Wednesday, October 19, at 7pm.
Llandaff Diocesan youth officer, the Revd Dr Sarah Rogers said, “This is a vital new discipleship training resource and what better place to launch it than a cinema where it can receive the big screen treatment.
“In Llandaff we are always looking for different and new ways to offer training and these short films can be used in small groups to provide a platform for questions and discussions about faith. It is ideal to be used as a resource for young people but could be used by groups of people of any age.”
The aim of Twelve is not to give answers but to start discussion and debate around faith and living. Many of those whose stories are featured are due to attend the launch.
Dr Morgan said, “These 12 short films offer a compelling and creative way to explore questions about our faith. The stories behind each one are unique and powerful yet they raise questions most of us have had at some point in our lives. I am sure the DVD will become a valuable resource for discussion groups, challenging and inspiring us to seek out answers.”
Twelve is joint venture between the dioceses of Llandaff, Monmouth and Swansea and Brecon. The 12 people featured in the films show how their questions come out of their experiences as Christians, and the films show how their questions have shaped their lives.
