Greenbelt takes place over the August Bank Holiday, 23-26 August 2019. The URC is again one of the festival’s partners. As part of the URC’s theme of ‘Walking the Way with Wit and Wisdom,’ and in keeping with previous years’ fantastic contributions from local URCs, we would like postcard sized items with your favourite quotes, Bible passages and sayings which will be hung around our tent. It’s a big tent so we need a lot! Would you be willing to create postcard-sized crafts which containing words you would love to share?
This could be a piece of advice from a grandparent, your favourite quote from Ghandi, or even your favourite joke! They can be embroidered on fabric, cross stitched, knitted, or even handwritten on a postcard from your local town!
All we ask is no plastic and, where able, please use materials you already have. Reuse, recycle and no litter please! Even better if what you make is as weather-durable as possible! If you are able to help, please also send pictures of you or your church group making the decorations to
(please make sure you have permission to share the photo from everyone in the picture, before sending it).
Please see the attached e-flyer which explains this year’s theme: ‘Walking the Way with Wit and Wisdom’ and what we would like you to create. If it’s not quite your thing, please feel free to share it with whoever you think would love to be involved and do help spread the word and print posters for communal areas! We have recently included this flyer in a URC church mailing and will continue to send out to Synods and church groups until they’re all gone.
For us, it really is the more the merrier so if we are able to get even more people involved this year, it would make us very happy! Please do make sure you send us photos of you making your fabulous creations too (with names and the church(s) involved) and we will share on social media - with your permission. Also, please send your postcard sized item(s) to Stephanie Twilley (as per flyer) by the beginning of August please.
And finally, please be aware of how much we value your support. Each year, the URC tent just gets better and better and we couldn’t make it half as good without your valuable input.
