New and newsworthy
This is the clear message from Embrace the Middle East’s recent survey conducted into the views of UK churchgoers on the Syrian refugee crisis.
It’s that time again when we open up our online submissions and invite you to pitch your offerings to be part of next year’s Greenbelt Festival programme.
Every year we choose a theme for the festival, something to hang things on, something to fire our imaginations. We choose themes that are deliberately opaque, which you can take in any number of ways, which are open to interpretation. But here are just three initial thoughts (among many) about why we chose Silent Stars this year.
What they say
“What a beautiful, peaceful festival, filled with sensitive, spirited folks. Count me in!”
Tim DeLaughter/The Polyphonic Spree
“… probably one of the best festivals I’ve attended in terms of consciousness around peace and justice issues.”
“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.”
“I love playing Greenbelt – we’ve always been welcomed with open arms and the new site is just gorgeous.”
“… a brilliant, inspiring and powerful experience, full of inspirational people.”
“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!”
