Swim and Chips -  Saturday 12th February 2018 at 5pm

We have hired the Splash Pool at City Baths, Fairfax Street from 5.15pm (in the water) to 6.15pm for some fun and exercise. Afterwards those who wish to can return to QRBC for Fish & Chips (or similar). Spectators can join us at the pool and others can join us for the food at QRBC at around 6.45pm if they wish.

At the moment we have just 50 places at the pool. We may be able to increase this if people book early and there is high demand. The rules about supervision of children are strictly enforced.

There must be at least one adult with no other caring responsibilities for every child of 4 years and under. And there must be one adult to every 2 children who are 5, 6 or 7.

Ishmael "Glorie Days" Concert - Tuesday 13th March 2018

We had Ishmael with us in 2017 with his "Sting in the Tale" tour and he will be visiting again with his "Glorie Days" concert. 

Ishmael / Ish  (Rev’d Ian Smale) has been travelling around internationally in a ‘full time’ music capacity since 1970. Having completed a couple of years training at a Pentecostal theological college, he went on to spend some years in the Elim pastoral ministry in London and the north of England. Ish was ordained into the Anglican Church in 2007 and is now licensed to Chichester Cathedral as their non-stipendary, ‘Missioner Deacon’ and is affectionately known to the Bishop, Dean and Chapter, and congregation as ‘Deacon Ish!’

He (and we) will be singing songs that some may remeber from Spring Harvest including Down in a noisy small valley, Jehovah Jireh, We are the Glorie Company, We are in God’s army, and Father God I wonder.

Tickets on the door £5 adults and £3 children (recommended for older children)
