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

Let's Dance

NewsPosted by Anna 07 Oct, 2013 13:53:34
We are still looking for a dance assistant and dance teacher for some of our sessions, so if you are interested please do get in touch.

It's hard to believe that we are already in October AND the sun is still shining, bit of a bonus! We've had a fabulous start to the academic year with children signed up for the dance club at Onslow Infants, the launch of Blurred Edges and Moving Rainbows.

We've seen new and old faces come and put their dancing shoes on and learn some new skills. Some of the core team and Living Colour network have just come back from a Dance conference with the Christian Dance Fellowship of Britain (CDFB) in Midhurst. It was a fantastic day, lots learnt and lots of aching limbs, but all worth it!

There are only a few workshops left of 2013 (where has the year gone!) and it would be great to see you there. Full details will be out shortly, but for your diaries...

MONDAY 14th October - Moving Rainbows @ QE Park Centre, 3.40pm - 6.15pm, various ages.

FRIDAY 8th November - Final Living Colour SEED workshop of the year and Party! We've got a lovely studio at the University of Surrey thanks to one of our teachers Hannah Luke and there will also be live worship.

MONDAY 11th November - Moving Rainbows @ QE Park Centre, 3.40pm - 6.15pm, various ages.

TUESDAY 12th November - Blurred Edges @ Guildford Baptist Church

PLUS
** NEW** FOR 2014 A DANCE RETREAT IS PLANNED. PROVISIONAL DATES 25th - 27th APRIL in WILTSHIRE.

New Website!

NewsPosted by Anna 09 Jul, 2013 18:41:57

Well hasn't this blog been quiet for a while! At uC Grace we have been beavering away with lots of new things over the last few months, which has meant this has been neglected. Oops! But we are now back in full swing and shall endeavour to keep you posted on all that is going on. There will be a lot of posts over the next few days with lots of new information! So keep coming back for more!

The first exciting thing, is that we have a new website!! It's finally up and running, there are as ever a few things that still need ironing out, but go on, have a nose around. Things should be much easier to navigate and we have managed to integrate the two blogs into the site. Yes I said TWO blogs! There this one that you are reading, naturally! But there is also one called Living Colour Creative, which is about our Living Colour work for dance and movement in faith. It talks about lots of things, from how to teach, to workshop ideas, thoughts for the day and every Friday there is some sort of dance posted to get inspiration, learn or just watch! You can visit the blog here - www.livingcreative.ucgrace.co.uk.

Our gallery pages and project pages still need a bit of work, but we couldn't wait any longer to get it online so it could start serving you in the way that it should. If you have any feedback, hints or tips about the site please do pass it on!
