Holocaust Memorial Day Display @ St Peter's Rooms
Jan 24 @ 9:30 am – 12:30 pm

The liberation of Auschwitz occurred on 27th January 1945 and this day is now commemorated each year with International Holocaust Memorial Day (HMD). It remembers not just the millions of victims of the Nazis during World War II but also the victims of later genocides in Rwanda, Bosnia, Darfur and Cambodia.

Once again, Ruddington Parish Council is marking HMD with a display in St Peter’s Rooms available to view from Monday 21st January until Saturday 26th January 2019 during normal office opening hours.

The theme this year is “Torn From Home”. It consists of posters, poetry, booklets, photographs and cards detailing these tragedies. Booklets are available so that you can take the message of HMD away with you – and postcards are available to allow you to send a message to survivors of the Holocaust which RPC will pass on.

Organiser Paul Reedman says: “Please come along to see our display. The aim of the exhibition is to honour the victims of genocide and to enable people to reflect upon lessons learned in order to challenge hatred and persecution and to prevent further atrocities. It is suitable for children so please bring them along too. We hope that you will find it very worthwhile.”

Jazz in The Chapel with P.R.S. @ St Peter's Church
Feb 2 @ 7:30 pm

This jazz concert is being held in St Peter’s Church to help the 1st Ruddington Scouts with their Scout Hut Roof fundraising efforts.

P.R.S. are ex-BBC drummer Simon Potts, guitarist Steve Rodda and bassist Mat Short. For this special fundraiser, they’re joined by saxophonist Rick Woolgar.

Playing their own takes on jazz and blues standards, P.R.S. with Rick Woolgar create a sound that they promise is very accessible and great to dance to or just sit and enjoy.

Doors open 7:00pm – Music from 7:30pm.

Please click >>HERE<< for tickets.

BACKGROUND:

The 1st Ruddington Scouts have 140 young people and 22 adult leaders in Beavers, Cubs and Scouts from within our village.

That’s almost 140 families that benefit from the work done by the leaders and volunteers, teaching them ‘#skills for life’ through learning new adventurous skills, working towards community impact, learning about faith, the world and so much more!

The old Scout Hut roof is in need of some urgent attention

But there is a big problem – and it’s called Asbestos. The Scouts have to find £30,000 to replace the roof, which currently lets in water when it rains. They’re well on the way, but not there yet.

1st Ruddington Scouts is a charity and as such works on a shoestring, asking only £3 a week per child. This means the children can attend the weekly Scout meetings and makes the activities as accessible to as many families in the village as possible.

All proceeds from this event will go towards this worthy cause, plus all raffle ticket sales.

New Style Café Church @ St Peter's Church
Feb 3 @ 9:30 am – 10:50 am

On the first Sunday of every month a New Style Café Church takes place at St Peter’s Church from 9.30am until 10.50am. For those wishing to stay longer, this is followed by Holy Communion.

Organiser Debbie King told us: “We aim to provide something for everyone, from pre-school, through schools, teens, students, families, parents, grandparents, all ages and backgrounds! For those wanting activity on a Sunday morning, there is drama, music, art, crafts, and discussion groups. Also, a quieter area for reflection, space to think, pray, even prayed for.”

If you’re alone, lonely, or at a loose end on a Sunday morning, you’re encouraged to go along and join in – and so perhaps discover others in a similar position. “If new to the village – come to meet people from the local community, find out about our church community in the village and the things we do. If a busy professional or someone curious with questions – check us out, join a discussion!”

Central to the Café Church idea is a short talk on a Bible related topic incorporating film clips or sketches, a time of discussion and questions. “Find out how God and the Bible can help us in our everyday life – not just a topic that’s far out there, not relevant to us – discover that God is someone whom we can meet, and the Bible, a book we can learn from, even integrate into our lives” says Debbie.

All this, alongside coffee, Danish pastries and some good company will hopefully tempt you along to the informal atmosphere of this monthly Café Church at St Peter’s.

Rushcliffe Country Park “Move And Mingle” events are part of Rushcliffe Health Walks.

These are a guided health walks every Wednesday at 10.30am, starting at the education centre in the Country Park. The route varies from week to week around the park, usually no longer than 2 miles. The walk leader will adapt the route to suit the walkers – with a choice of walks to match your fitness and level of ability: a 30 minute shorter walk around the lake: or a longer walk of up to an hour.

ALSO: Friends of RCP coffee mornings take place from 10am until 12.00 noon on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of each month. So you’re invited to “Linger By The Lake” for refreshments after the walk on these days.
