The Story Yurt

In just a few short weeks we’ll be heading back to Greenbelt and our Story Yurt will once again open its doors. Here’s a sneaky peak at what we’re up to...

Mornings in the story yurt (9:30am each morning)

We’ll be starting each day as gently as simmering porridge. Starting with God’s word in mind, we’ll be reflecting on and retelling stories from the Bible as they were told before it was a book, printed and bound. So come join us, grab a cushion and make yourself at home.

Afternoons in the story yurt (2:30pm each afternoon)

Saturday – The Power Of Stories

We are bound together by our stories. So when poverty impacts anyone, anywhere, it’s a threat to everyone, everywhere. Come and hear inspiring stories from around the globe and get the lowdown on what you can do to help our global neighbours.

Sunday – Change The Story

Behind every ‘refugee’ label lies a story. And more often than not, it’s not the one the media is telling us. This afternoon we’ll be sharing tips and challenging one another to change the negative story around refugees. Instead, we’re going to hear stories told by refugees themselves because, at the end of the day we’re all part of the same story.

Monday – Crafting The Story

Join us in this practical session where we’ll be using our creativity to share stories. Find out how to use your creative skills to tackle injustice and bring an end to poverty.

Evenings in the story yurt (9pm Fri-Sun evening)

Each evening we’ll be wrapping up with an open mic story slam. It’s an open invitation and the stage is set for you to share your story with those gathered. Come and tell us your favourite tale or just find a spot to sit back and listen.
