Light Night 2020

Light Night 2020

 

Our church was an Entertainment Hub for Nottingham’s Light Night on 7th February 2020.

During the evening there was a wide range of musical and other entertainment with family meals and refreshments available. Music sessions included a ukulele “come and strum” sing-a-long, a jazz band with students from NTU, a dance workshop with NTU’s Hop Hop and Dancehall Dance Society, the Redhill Academy vocal group, instrumental recitals, Ravenshead Swing Band, the Teremok Russian School dance group, Kuderushki (a Russian Folk Group), anthems sung by the Church Choir and a “come and sing” songs from Les Miserables with our church choir.

The evening was very well-supported throughout the evening, with the many visitors providing good audiences for each of our entertainment groups.

Thank you to all the performers and to everyone who helped to prepare and serve the wonderful refreshments – cakes, teas, coffees and meals throughout the evening. And none of this would be possible without everyone who worked so hard to prepare for the evening and all our hard-working stewards, some of who braved the cold February evening outside the church to direct visitors.

International Food Evening 2013

On the evening before our Harvest Festival celebrations, Outreach Activity organised an International Food Evening for church members, family and friends.

Everyone attending was invited to make a dish of food to share (for 6-8 people) and, in return, was given tokens to exchange for the same number of portions of food from the wide selection of dishes that others brought.

International Food Evening

This was a great evening of food, conversation and laughter.
