theREIGN have been very quiet in recent months, which has been slightly frustrating, but at the same time extremely useful, as my career change from Financial Services to School Teacher has taken up a lot of time and, truth be told, having the space to concentrate on that has been vital.
As I try and settle into my new role (one term of NQT to go) we are slowly getting back into action and have a number of events coming in the second half of 2016, including a new version of our popular Rock Eucharist event.
First up is a visit to Stockton on Tees in the North East on Saturday 9th July 2016 for the debut of version 8 (or the proper version 7 – depending on which member of the band you speak to), followed by a genuine privilege as we have been asked to lead an RE as part of the After Hours programme for the brand new North of England New Wine event, Inspire, in Newsham, near Thirsk in North Yorkshire on Sunday evening the 21st August 2016.
We are then hoping for a full(er) Autumn programme of REs, more like years gone by. So far, we are definitely performing a concert for the Methodist Church (and other churches) in Hedon on Sunday 16th October and leading a Rock Eucharist at St Peter’s church, Bilton on Sunday 20th November 2016, and we are trying to nail down dates for further REs in Drypool and Scarborough.
We look forward to seeing you at one of these events and, don’t forget, if you want us to lead anything in your church, you only need to ask.
