Coming up soon: 

Wednesday 17 July, 2.00: Moonstruck Music

Ahead of the Moonbury Rings events which are taking place in Dorchester to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first moon landings, Dorset Rural Music School is offering a one-off music appreciation afternoon exploring music inspired by the moon - Moonstruck Music.

 Dr Richard Hall, Director of Dorset Rural Music School, will present a programme of recorded music that will enable us to find out how composers have taken the moon as a source of inspiration – and it’s not just Beethoven and Debussy! The programme of recorded music will include Haydn’s farcical opera with a hero who is duped into believing he has been transported to the moon, Frank Bridge’s serene vision of the English Channel by moonlight, and much more besides.

There is a £5 charge for the session.

 

Thursdays 25 July and 22 August 10.30am - 11.45am: Summer Forest Praise

Family-friendly fun, relaxed play and praise at the Surestart Children's Centre (next to Sunnydays Nursery in Poundbury) - children, parents and carers are all welcome: for more details, please see the News page.

Although these are not events taking place at the church, they are organised by members of the United Church Dorchester.

 

Sunday 4 August, 2.00 – 4.00pm: Sewing afternoon

Another opportunity to support girls in Kenya – the materials being created will help provide much needed resources for girls who cannot otherwise afford them. Someof the poorest girls in Kenya are being helped by this project, which supplies them with washable towels and pants, thus avoiding their missing school one week in every four. Schools identify those girls most in need, and they are given healthcare information when the towels are distributed.

Even if you feel sewing is not your thing, please come along and help with other activities that are critical to the production process!
