Be part of Greenbelt from home

From making paper beads and bunting to sending us your photos, find out how you can join us from home at this year’s Greenbelt Festival.

Each year, URC members who aren’t able to join us in person have connected with us through creating and sending in knitted items, handmade postcards, and through prayer. Each of these small offerings has found a place with many others sent from across the country to create a wonderful reflection of the creativity and diversity of the URC family. And at the end of each festival, people have been queuing up to take a little piece of the display home with them as a lasting reminder of precious times at Greenbelt.

For 2022, we are inviting you to:

Make paper beads

Please make some paper beads. These will be made into jubilee bracelets during our craft sessions at Greenbelt.

Make bunting

Create bunting for us to display in the tent at Greenbelt.

We would like you to make some bunting. This can be individual triangles or made into a 2-metre length! The bunting can be made from paper, card, cloth or whatever you happen to find around the home.

Your bunting triangles can include images of revolting Christians, symbols of faith or just multicoloured patterns and shapes that are beautiful to look at. You could create a representation of your congregation or church building or your neighbourhood or something celebrating the 50th year of the URC. Let your imagination fly!

Send your paper beads or bunting to:
