Musicians Network Day 2019
Our annual Musicians Network Vision Day this year is in just under 2 months time - on Sat 31st August from 10.30am to 4.30pm. These are always very inspiring days together! We would love to see you this year if you're free to join us.
The day will be The Millmead Centre in Guildford (home of Guildford Baptist Church). This is a great venue and is within easy reach of London. Please don't let the fact that we're outside the centre of London put you off coming! The train journey from London Waterloo is just over 30 mins if you get a fast train.
We will in a position to subsidise train fares for students or those of you with tight resources - please let me know confidentially if you need that help with that.
We're hoping parking will be available for those travelling by car with bigger instruments or with mobility needs. Please let me know if you need this. There are also public car parks within walking distance of the church. I will send more details nearer the time.
I'm delighted to confirm that our guest speaker this year will be Karen Case-Green, who is a visual artist with a great deal of wisdom and experience in the art world:
Karen holds an MA in Christianity and the Arts from King’s College, London. She has a particular calling to engage people’s imaginations with God’s story. Her desire is to call out the ‘raw material’ in each of us so that we live at our creative best, and to see how God’s beauty and creativity can bring healing to the broken. She is also the co-author of a book on the arts and mission entitled 'Imaging the Story'
Here's a basic outline of the day:
10.30 Gather for coffee/tea/fellowship
11.20 A talk by Karen Case-Green and opportunity to share together in groups.
2.15 Worship and opportunities to improvise, sharing of stories and initiatives and prayer for each other.
We end the day by 4.30pm
Tea/coffee/biscuits will be available throughout the day, and Sally Hosken has kindly offered to provide lunch (for a donation from each of us) to save us having to search for food at lunchtime. We need to know numbers in advance for this!
Please also bring instruments.
If you have anything you'd like to share with us, there will be opportunity for that in the afternoon - and we'd love to pray for you where appropriate.
Also to let you know that donations will be invited towards the cost of the day and to give a ministry gift to Karen.
These Vision Days are always very encouraging so please do invite others to come along. It would be great to have some music college students, church musicians and other artists with us. Please send the word out - and get people to drop me a quick email if they can come along.
