We’re pleased to announce that we’ll be working closely with SCM (the Student Christian Movement) towards this year’s festival.
Here’s what SCM says:
SCM are really excited to be partnering with Greenbelt. As well as giving a voice to students at the festival, we want to make sure students find a bit of the Greenbelt spirit near them all year round, in every city and on every campus.
By working with local churches, student groups and chaplaincies, we want to build inclusive communities where students can explore and deepen their faith, dream dreams and work together for God’s kingdom of peace and justice.
Emma first got involved with SCM after visiting our stand in the G Source exhibition venue at the festival:
“SCM has completely transformed my experience of university. I’ve made great friends and had so many opportunities to explore and deepen my faith. I’ve been going to Greenbelt since I was at school, and between these two organisations, my faith has been challenged, refreshed, and inspired. I can’t wait to see what a force for good this partnership will be in terms of student faith and ministry in Britain.”
We’re excited to work together with a grassroots student body that so closely resonates with our theology, vision and values. Our hope is that this new relationship helps strengthen our reach into student communities up and down the country (see also our great young adult ticket discount: 18 to 25-year-olds can get a weekend ticket for Greenbelt for just £75 if they book before the end of March.
