Get caught up in the RAPTURE this Sunday ...

For those still waiting to exhale, Soulmate is a gripping cinematic journey into the realities facing today’s successful, saved, and single African American women. This deeply personal portrait reveals the trials, and triumphs of unforgettable women while offering hope and practical advice on such issues as loneliness, the desire for sexual intimacy, men on the “down low”, the ticking biological clock and the uncertainty of the future. This film offers uplifting revelations about the quest for your true… “Soulmate.”

Following the opening screening of this new monthly film club 'Rapture,' which will be screening on the last Sunday of the month until September, audiences will be invited to participate in discussion about the subject of being single, christian and a black woman, with panelist members Angie Le Mar, Geff Schumann and a host of others.

In the USA screenings of Soulmate stirred up conversations that spread to the national press:

" SOULMATE has ignited a grass roots movement across the country as home and church screenings are serving as an intimate platform for much needed discussion between the sexes. This is especially critical as The New York Times reported that as many as 70% of Black women are not married and 42.3% have never been married."

The film went on to receive many awards following its 2007 debut:

Best Feature Film – African American Women In Cinema
Audience Choice – African American Women In Cinema
Best Documentary – Hollywood Black Film Festival
Best Documentary - San Francisco Christian Film Festival WYSIWYG
Best Documentary Sweet Auburn International Film Festival
Best Documentary – International Black Film Festival of Nashville
Best Documentary – Urban Vestige Film Festival

Can the same be said of single women in the UK? Is this an issue amongst Christians and other faith groups?

Go along, enjoy the film, engage in conversation, and get caught up in the Rapture ...
