Latest Festival Flyer update from Greenbelt


Against a backdrop of inflation, soaring energy prices, empty shelves and supply chain issues, the approach of Christmas might feel more daunting than usual this year. But it’s still the perfect time to remind ourselves that the best things in life don’t depend on just-in-time delivery. They’re not fired by oil or gas and they’re totally immune to inflation.

We’re talking about the stuff money can’t buy. Virtues like love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, gentleness, creativity, compassion, hope and justice. On paper, just words. Just blah blah blah, as Greta would say. But put into practice? They can – and do – change the world.

These are the very same things we celebrate and cherish at Greenbelt. In fact, creating a space each year for all this good stuff to flourish is the reason we exist. So, in the run-up to this Christmas – inspired by the story of a baby who came into the world with nothing, who took on an empire and kick-started a revolution of radical love and justice – we’re reflecting on these virtues to remind ourselves who we are and how we might live these words.

We’d love to hear how you’re making these words matter in your life. How you’re making them flesh, so that they live and breathe and make a difference in the world. We’ll be sharing our reflections too, but we’d love you to let us know your stories of how love, joy and patience find their expression in your lives and the difference they make. Use the hashtag #SomeWordsToBelieveIn to share your thoughts.

Because there’s no doubt these are troubling times. But this Christmas we can still choose to be the change we want to see. We can make spaces where the usual rules no longer apply and where a different set of words hold sway.
