snowdropsWelcome

It's great to welcome you and introduce all that is happening in and around our church centre in the heart of Rugby.

There's always plenty going on at Rugby Methodist Church Centre and you are welcome to join us at our services, for a coffee in the Cafe or other activities:

Chess in Rugby

16 February 2019, 1-4pm  Rugby Art Gallery and Museum

Chess is a game which is intellectually stimulating but where skill does not favour age, gender or physical dexterity. It is not a game where language is required and so is truly international and it is not one which requires expensive equipment or a special space. 

To coincide with Rugby Operatic Society's Production of Chess The Musical (at Avon Valley School, 12-16 February), Rugby Chess Club are holding chess sessions in the education room at Rugby Art Gallery and Museum to encourage new members to join.

Coming soon! a Youth Theatre Production

Are you or do you know anyone aged 13 - 18?

Do you enjoy creating theatre or wanting to build your confidence through drama?

Come and join us in creating 'Brainstorm' a show created by you, based on the script by Ned Glasier, Emily Lim and Company Three.
The play will try to answer what is it that makes a teenager’s brain unique? And what does it mean to grow up in 2019? 
It will be directed and led by our youth pastor, Ruth, who has years of directing experience. 

Performances on: Friday 5th and Saturday 6th July (performed at Rugby Methodist Church Centre)
For more information contact Ruth, mobile 07596 812207

If, as an over 18, you feel you would like to support this project in a voluntary capacity, offer technical help, or help of 'front of house' and refreshments for the performance, or just contribute to the costs of the show, do not hesitate to get in touch!
