Renew Extended Viewing

Extended Viewing

Our Art Exhibition has finished it’s first week of being open to the public, and we’ve had lots of people enjoy coming to look round and spend some time with the art. After everyone put so much work in, we’ve decided to keep the artwork up for a couple of weeks so there will be some further opportunities to view it. This week it will be open to the public on the mornings of Wednesday 23rd and Friday 25th. The following week it will be open Monday 28th 9-4, Wednesday 30th 9-1, Thursday 1st 1-4, and Friday 2nd 9-1. After that we will hopefully be moving some of the art over to Blessed John Duns Scotus for further opportunities to view it and enjoy it. Any questions or if you would like to arrange to see Renew outwit those hours please get in touch  - 07715119263

Renew is Open!

The Art Exhibition we have been working to bring together is now up and running – come and pay us a visit. We are open Monday to Thursday this week from 10am until 4pm. In the end we received 92 pieces for the exhibition.

Renew is a celebration of themes that are fundamentally human, set within the context of the Easter story.

In these artworkswe have drawn on the combined talent creativity and experience of people from Gorbals and beyond, and we hope you agree that the result is both beautiful and exciting.

Whatever tradition you come from and whatever beliefs you hold to we invite you to join with us in celebrating Easter, we invite you to use the artwork here to reflect on your own journey and, if you wish, to engage with the idea of the humanity of Jesus, who was fully h...

….from this week’s bible study

Reading – Luke 14 v1,7 – 14

A dinner guest who comments on the behaviour of his fellow diners is unlikely to be popular…..but Jesus does just that in order to challenge the assumptions of those who are “in” in their society and to make a case for a different way of relating – both to one another and to God.

It made us think about our own customs of inviting people with the expectation that we’ll be invited back…..and also about the need to find ways for people to gather and eat together without feeling “indebted” for the experience. We celebrated that the “Big Thursday” lunches at Bridging the Gap do just that!

Sunshine!

Yay for the sunshine :)

So this is just an update on all the stuff that is going on here just now. Over the next week the cafe at One Errol Gardens will be closing from Thursday to Thursday. This is because we are doing a mini refit and smartening the place up a wee bit. We’ve been open as a cafe for just over a year, and have served over 3000 customers and almost 1000 conference delegates, and we’ve lived in the space for that time, and worked out what is good and what is not, and we’re going to make one or two changes. So we open again on Friday 31st May with a refreshed and revamped space. The music groups will run as usual on Wednesday the 29th regardless of the cafe being closed. Rowdy Rascals is off on Friday 24th.
