The BIG Story – Saturday 3rd June from 10.30am-3.30pm at the Cathedral.  A free, family-friendly day of learning, creating, and worshipping together.  Time to sign up and get planning!  

Our Diocesan Gathering this year is an opportunity to share our stories of faith, and The BIG Story.  There are two aspects to the day: 

Showcasing our Churches’ life together:

We invite each of our churches to come together to share the BIG Story of the good news of Jesus, by showcasing an aspect of its life/its life in the community.   

How? Discuss with your Vestry, talk together and plan your contribution. Choose one thing that shows how you share the Good News in your location, and try link it to a verse from the Bible, or a Bible story, that speaks of the good news of Jesus.  Try to make your stall as creative and interactive as possible, for example you could use a craft, puzzle, game, quiz or simple activity. You will have quite a small space, about 2m x 2m.  If you can bring a table that would be helpful – or let Sarah Shaw know if you need one!  You are welcome to bring other things as necessary. 

Workshops – something for everyone 

What? The confirmed workshops are listed below.  There will also be a young kids’/baby-friendly soft space, and Play Church available.  The day will culminate with everyone coming together for ‘The Man with the Plan ‘ (The Jesus Rap!), and for worship, in praise of the God who gave us the BIG Story. 

 What to do now 

  1. Share this information with everyone in your congregation via social media, your website, pew sheets, and notices. 
  2. Book your FREE spot via Eventbrite.
