Stories on the street is a resource to help churches in the UK to engage with and work alongside their communities to bring transformation. It is written in 6 modules on the themes of vision, celebrating what we have, a heart of compassion, building relationships, understanding our community and stepping out in faith. Each module contains in depth creative Bible studies and practical participatory tools that can be used with church and community members to make life better for all, particularly the vulnerable and marginalised.
‘Touching the cloak’ is a series of monologues based on the encounters of Jesus.
There are twenty monologues in all, including the voices of Jesus’ friends, his family and those he met on his journey, who he stopped for to heal or to restore dignity and wholeness of life. This collection also includes four ‘back to back’ monologues, two different viewpoints of the same story. At the end of the book are a collection of monologues suitable for holy week and Easter.
These scripts have been used in community development training courses, church services and dramatic productions in the UK and also overseas in countries such as Haiti, Kenya, Nepal and Indonesia, translated and performed by people of different cultures.
