Moving house, moving site – any move – can be tricky. You make plans, map out the space and decide where the furniture goes. It’s only when you’ve moved in and you’ve lived with it for a while, do you get an idea of what really works. So, this was the year of the move. Of stepping off, jumping in, setting things up and trying things out at Boughton.
Although based in England, Greenbelt has enjoyed long and important links with Scotland – its artists and thinkers, its theologians and its spirituality. And that’s why the up-coming Scottish Independence Referendum is just as much a matter for those of us south of the border as those north of it.

What they say
“Greenbelt is an inspiring and fascinating celebration of social justice, breaking down barriers between those of faith and no faith. It’s not only good fun – it lifts the hearts of all of us who believe in a better world.”
“My first trip to Greenbelt revolutionised my view of the vitality of faith in the UK and I have been telling stories ever since. What a remarkable gathering!”
Barbara Brown Taylor
