The Chosen Film Series

May – July 2022

The Chosen is a TV series all about the life of Jesus and those who first followed Him. It is a really well-made show that gives a very good picture of what life in Jesus’ day would have been like, and gets under the skin of those who met and knew Him. It is the largest crowd-funded media project of all time and has an IMDb rating of 9.6/10.

Starting on May 10, we will be showing the first series of The Chosen in our building on our big screen. All are welcome! It is being organised by one of the Life Groups in our church, who will be providing refreshments and making sure everybody is well looked after.

Who is invited?

Everyone is so welcome to come and join us for this – come along, and invite a friend as well! If you aren’t part of our church normally, please don’t let that stop you coming along. We are sure you’ll enjoy the series and will receive a warm and friendly welcome. If you are part of Gold Hill, you are also very welcome. Come as an individual, with your family or (if your group is up for it) come along as a whole Life Group, enjoy the series and chat about it together afterwards.

What will happen?

Very simply, there will be refreshments available from 7:30pm, and we will put an episode of the series on at 8pm. After it is finished, there is no pressure to stick around, but there will also be opportunities to discuss that episode, catch up with others and (if you’d appreciate it) pray with others about anything it’s sparked. All to finish at 9:30pm.

Is there a cost?

No! The production company behind the series have given us permission to show it for free, so there is no cost for coming to join in.

The dates

We will be starting on 10 May (a Tuesday evening) and it will run on Tuesday evenings with only a couple of breaks, finishing on 19 July. The full list of dates (and episode numbers in case you miss a week!) are:

All of the episodes are free and available to watch online, or via the Chosen app (search in your App Store), so if you do miss an episode you can catch up.

Want to join in?

Below you can see the official trailer for The Chosen, to get a flavour of what it will be like. If you’d like to join us for it you can just turn up on any of the evenings, but to help with refreshments it would be really helpful to know roughly how many people are coming.
