October 2016 News

NewsPosted by Anna 12 Oct, 2016 21:18:13
October is here!

I can't believe that we are now in October and what a glorious October it has been so far. I don't know about you, but I love autumn, watching the colours change, the days get colder and shorter and wrapping up more. It reminds me how our relationship with God can go in cycles and change depending on the circumstances that we are in. God shows up in the most unexpected places. Are you ready for God to show up where you are now?

Changes afoot...
After much thought, I have made the decision to move the Moving Rainbows workshops to Farnham. This was a hard decision as I love dancing with and sharing with the children that come along in Guildford. But since joining Jubilee Church Farnham I felt it important that I begin to build a network near where I worship. I would love the Guildford children to still attend the workshops - they will only run during the holidays, but I'm also excited to meet the new children that will have the opportunity to share and learn about dancing and faith. Please see below for dates of the next workshops.

2017 Living Colour Workshops
Our Living Colour workshops for 2016 have finished, however as well as our regular workshops that happen. I am in the process of planning some a full day dance days during February/ early March, hopefully in Guildford. Looking further, ahead I am exploring the possibility of a full day during September further north for all you lovely people that live up that way. Watch this space for more info!

Performance 9th October
Myself, Llyndyn, Helen and Diana from Deo Gloria will be performing In Christ Alone at Emmanuel Church, Guildford on Sunday morning, it would be great to remember us in your prayers.

Please keep sharing our workshops, interacting with us and letting us know whether you have any ideas for workshops or performances. Thank you for your ongoing support.

Blessings,
Anna
