Hospitality Support Volunteers - Rose Castle

We are looking for some volunteers to support our training programmes, by helping with tea breaks, setting up for lunch and filling the dishwashers afterwards.
The Volunteers would also be able to join some of the training sessions and learn more about peacebuilding and reconciliation.
Our next programme will be the ‘Encounter’ multi-faith programme with Princeton University and support would be needed on the 28
th, 29th, 30th and 31st October 2019.
The training will be held at Glingerbank House near Longtown.
Travel expenses can be reimbursed. 
If you are able to help with any of these dates or would like to know more, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator.

Prayer Meeting
A time had been set aside each month to pray for the future of the Foundation, in All Saints Church, Raughton Head. These Prayer Meetings take place at 9.30 am. on the first Friday of the month.
The venue is flexible at the moment, so please contact Owen May for up to date information.

Everyone is welcome, whatever their faith or non-faith.

Plans Take Shape
Plans to transform the former Bishop of Carlisle's residence into an international centre of reconciliation have taken a major step forward.
Raising the funds needed for the project is already underway, but Rose Castle Company (RCC) has confirmed that the project as a whole has been underwritten by an unnamed "generous benefactor".
A planning application has now been submitted to Carlisle City Council to transform the castle, based near Dalston, from the former Bishop's residence to a mixed use conference centre.

Bible Study
It is a friendly, growing community, and everyone is welcome to join. Every
Thursday at 7.30 pm.
The venue is flexible at the moment, so please contact Owen May for up to date information.
After some teaching on the weekly passage, we share our thoughts and always appreciate how much we can learn from the diverse understanding we each bring. We are a community that reflects the heart of the Rose Castle Foundation, learning how to love one another through our differences and seeking together the heart of God's Kingdom.
