Greenbelt

Covid-19 Update

Due to the ongoing uncertainty and government advice and activity around combating the Coronavirus pandemic, the Greenbelt festival for 2020 has unfortunately been cancelled. Although we are saddened, this just means that, using the same theme of Revolting Christians, the United Reformed Church will work towards an even more creative and involved presence for 2021. More information about COVID-19 and the festival can be found on the Greenbelt website.

Help us keep the spirit of Greenbelt alive

But don’t think the fun stops there! In the meantime, we aim to keep you entertained at home and connected to Greenbelt with regular activities. Download our PDF of ideas here.

NEW flyer for web

 Feeling crafty?

We'd like you to create symbols used by Christians. The symbols can be made out of any media and need to be no more than credit card size. Please remember to reuse and recycle.

We are trying to cut down waste and the environmental impact of our projects, so we ask you to use materials you already have, wherever possible.

#RevoltingChristians 

Wanted Poster

We also invite you to share your stories of Revolting Christians - either as individuals or groups. These will be people who have inspired you by standing up for their faith and beliefs, perhaps by challenging authority or popular opinion.

We would like you to send us a photo or drawing of them and a little bit about them and why they inspire you. You can download a Wanted poster template here (jpg).

You can either send us an A4 size copy (address can be found on our flyer), email it to revoltingchristian@urc.org.uk or use social media to encourage others to join in, adding photos of your creations to facebook, twitter and instagram using the hashtag #revoltingchristians
