(Re)Launch of the Blackley Centre

By 26th July 2019 October 1st, 2019 No Comments

Dear Friends,

You may have already received these invitations by other routes – if so, please forgive the duplication. Please also excuse the ‘group’ nature of this email. Some of you are very dear friends, or indeed family, whilst others are passing ‘companions on the way’, and a collective email is hard to write to such a varied group. So if it is too formal, or too familiar, we hope you will understand, and read further!
You, or the organisation of which you are a part, has come alongside us in some way in our journey of creating the Blackley Centre for Peace, Reconciliation and Dialogue (Relate, Restore, Reconcile) and we have shared with many of you our vision for this place. Some of you have benefited from training provided by the centre, others from mediation or conflict transformation work, and many of you have encouraged us personally as we have sought to create a place for relating across difference for our broken world, here in beautiful West Yorkshire. So….
We would like to invite you to the (Re) Launch of The Blackley Centre. Saturday 12th October 2019 at 2.00 pm. 
Whilst the Centre has been in existence for some years, and the newer work of Peace, Reconciliation and Dialogue has been underway for 18 months, we wanted to have an event to officially ‘launch’ so to speak. We have put together what we hope will be a great afternoon, with workshops, a short play by Sardines Theatre Company, a singing workshop with Janet Swan and ‘Singing for the Soul’, a collaborative art mosaic, tea, cake, and a short celebration at 4.00 pm to close the afternoon.
We would love to see you there and to catch up, but also to share with you where the centre is going, how it is growing, how we may be able to work with and for you in the future and how you can be a part of the story.
To help with catering we would ask that you let us know if you hope to come, either by phone 01422 646803 or via Eventbrite
