CANCELLATION of the Carrs Lane Lectures in Radical Christian Faith 2018
It is with the greatest regret that we have cancelled the Carrs Lane Lectures’ day on Saturday 6th October 2018. Sadly Richard Holloway has had to clear his diary for the rest of the year on his doctor’s advice. He has apologised profusely for letting us down, hoping that we might be able to reorganise the day but, with only five weeks to go, that did not seem possible. I’m so sorry.
It is extremely disappointing for everyone who was looking forward to hearing Richard, especially for those of us at Carrs Lane who have put so much into the event preparation. The priority now is to publicise the cancellation and arrangements for the refunding of tickets will be made as soon as possible. If you don't hear from us personally, please contact the church office for further information on 0121 643 6151; firstname.lastname@example.org
We are thinking of Richard and wish him well in his recovery.
MAKING SPACE - children's & youth workers
Rugby 6th October 2018
We are very excited about the forthcoming MAKING SPACE Conference that we’re holding in Rugby URC on October 6th. We appreciate that it’s a little way off (and we’ve all been quite busy focussing on the various events taking place in Nottingham in July!) however, we thought it would be useful for you to see the information with a view to sharing widely. We want to give as many people as possible the opportunity to join us for quite possibly the first event of its kind run by the C&YW team.
