This Church was also featured the the BBC television 2008 series 'Survivors'series It depicts the lives of a group of people who survived a virulent strain of heretofore unknown influenza which has wiped out most of the human race. According to the producers, the series is not a remake of the popular 1970s BBC television series Survivors (1975–1977), created by Terry Nation
