The Sharon Full Gospel Church in Old Trafford, Manchester, is the subject of this fascinating documentary made by the church's own film unit. The film also paints a striking picture of inner-city Manchester in the 1960s, as the old terraced streets are demolished and replaced. Local people, meanwhile, go on as usual, continuing to work, play, and worship in the midst of all the upheaval.
