Learn to communicate God’s Word to oral-preference cultures
Monday 5 - Friday 9 November, 2018
Redcliffe College, Gloucester, UK
Sponsor: Redcliffe College, Wycliffe Bible Translators, SIL

The art of storytelling has far from died out, and the need for good biblical storytellers is as strong as ever in a world of oral cultures, postliterate societies and oral-preference learners.

If you are interested in story crafting, or are serving or planning to serve with a culture who either have no Scriptures, or prefer audio and visual ways of learning, then the Chronological Bible Storying course will give you the tools you need to be effective.

This course will equip you to help others engage with Scripture in a deep, relational way as you deliver the biblical narrative through the art of storytelling.

This unique course features no texts, no handouts, and no written aids. The intense 5-day course is entirely oral and participatory, and it is essential that you are able to attend each day.

Chronological Bible Storying will help you to:

  • help others learn and internalise the story
  • lead a discussion about the spiritual application of the story
  • begin storycrafting with a Bibleless language group, or people who have access to Scriptures but need help engaging with them

The dates for this course are 5-9 November 2018 (with an
optional pre-course social time together on the evening of 4
November). The tuition fees are £250 per student.

For more details on the course and booking information see Redcliffe's website.

Redcliffe’s Bible Storying course is delivered by the Centre for Linguistics, Translation and Literacy, a partnership with Wycliffe Bible Translators and SIL International.

Thanks for highlighting the Bible Storying course, which we are excited to be putting on at Redcliffe in the Autumn. It is wonderful to see the development of the Centre for Linguistics, Translation and Literacy.
I teach Bible and Mission at Redcliffe and am so excited to be learning from Wycliffe/SIL friends!
