Calling musicians, singers, songwriters, poets -
Can you contribute songs, instrumental items, poems, readings or other artistic material for an evening of music, words and art on spiritual themes to be held at All Saints' church, Raleigh Street, Nottingham NG7 on Sunday 14th July?
The emphasis of the evening will be an open and exploratory spirituality, enabling people of all ages and backgrounds to come together to share their own contributions and to experience those of others. These may be modern or traditional, high tech/low tech/no tech, created by yourself or just presenting an item of your choice. The event will be open to the public and publicised in Nottingham churches and elsewhere. Refreshments will be available.
If you might be interested in contributing, please contact Rev Christopher Harrison, vicar of the parish of All Saints, St Mary and St Peter, Nottingham, on 07973 754165 or email@example.com .

Theology that transforms :

CRB checking Roadshow :
The church does a huge amount of work with children, young people and vulnerable adults. We are often the people who provide activities and do pastoral care where no-one else does. But we also need to ensure that all the work we do is safe for the workers and volunteers, and safe for those we are serving.
The Nottingham South date is 25th April at St Barnabas, Lenton Abbey and Nottingham North is May 7th at St Margaret’s, Aspley. Both events are 7.30-9.00pm.
As these are significant changes it will be a requirement that at least one of the following attend from each church: Incumbent, Safeguarding Officer, CRB checker (if different), up to a maximum of 3 from each benefice. If none of these attend, the Diocese will no longer be able to organise and process the criminal records check for people in that church. Of course, this Roadshow will not be a ‘Safeguarding Training’ session, and therefore those who need to update their safeguarding knowledge will also need to attend another event. So if you are an appropriate person from your church, then make sure you put this date in your diary. We look forward to seeing you.
Please note that the training detailed below relates to the new regulations on compulsory safeguarding training for all licensed clergy. Clergy working as chaplains at hospitals and prison who have requirements and access to similar training in their working context need to supply a record of that training to the Department for Development.
