'Unpacking the Story' Workshop

Suitable for people working with children, young people and adults in church, school and family settings 


'In both the Old and New Testaments of our Christian Scriptures, story is the primary means of bringing God's Word to us. For that we can be most grateful, for story is our most accessible form of speech. Young and old love stories.' (Eugene Peterson)


This workshop will give people the opportunity to play with and in the story, through using Story Boxes and Mats, which have been developed as part of the King's Baptist Grammar School Faith Studies program.

This workshop includes:

Background to the development of the Story Mats and BoxesExperiencing a Story Mat presentation of a Biblical StoryOpportunity to 'play' with the Story MatsOpportunity to explore how these boxes and mats could help support your work and ministry

At this workshop, we will be launching the 'Unpacking the Story' hire service, making the boxes and mats available for loan at a reasonable cost and saving each church and school from having to build their own.
