Living Library

We have lots of fabulous Books ready in our ‘library’ each with provocative or interesting subtitles and stories – who could you invite to come along and engage with the stories in these Books?

 

When?

Saturday 22nd May, online 10am – 12 noon

Deadline for booking, noon on Thursday 20th May www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/living-library-tickets-141975914783

 

What is it?

A Living Library is a space where Readers engage with the stories of the Books.

A place to ask the ‘silly questions’ which you don’t want to ask people you know locally

A place to challenge stereotypes about who is ‘suitable’ for a particular ministry

 

Who is this event aimed at?

  • Ministers and other church leaders who want to enable intentional conversations about vocations in your Circuit -  come along and experience the event to see if this is something you might host locally
  • People who wonder if one of these ministries is for them
  • People already in one of these ministries and feeling a little jaded or lacking in confidence, to talk with others from other contexts.
