Mid-Winter Storytelling: Tales from Lockdown
Join us on Sunday July 26th 5-7pm in the St George’s Church Courtyard for brazier fires and good conversation!
We’ll be sharing inspiring COVID19 stories from round the world, bible stories of lockdown and your own, so come with stories to tell!
You’ll need to BYO dinner – from home or local take away/pizza order (unfortunately we can’t do food during this COVID period). We will make sure the event complies with the latest COVID safeguards.
Part of the COVID requirements will mean you’ll need to book a spot and let us know if you’re coming – do that by RSVPing to email@example.com.

Previously in 2020:
In 2020 we are looking at the biography of Jesus recorded in the Gospel of Luke and will focus on different key moments in Jesus’ life.
For February we reflected on the story of Jesus at age 12 in the temple from Luke 2. Hearing how Jesus understood his own identity – as a Child of God, belonging in the temple, and so we reflected on our own sense of identity and belonging, asking ‘Who am I? Where Do I belong?’. And we heard the wonderful news, that in Jesus we are welcomed into God’s family and we can answer: ‘I’m God’s child and I belong in God’s family’. With –
- hunting for lost figurines across the church site
- a conga line (bring your maraccas!)
- a community storytelling drama
- silhouette poster making
