On Wednesday April 27th SBC has the privilege to welcome Anne Pitcher to lead a workshop on Biblical Story Telling. The aim of the workshop is to provide skills in learning and telling Biblical stories as part of a focus on Creative Homiletics. The workshop will be a ‘hands-on’ lesson in how to re-tell biblical stories in a creative and engaging way – perfect for any preachers or pastors!
The workshop will last from approximately 1:30pm to 3pm. We have a limited number of spaces for this workshop to open to the public (very limited as Creative Homiletics students have pre-registered!) However, if you are interested then please do contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Anne has enjoyed many very different professions during her life, having been a journalist, Public Relations Officer for a Christian charity for disabled people, Nursery Manager, registered childminder and Nursery Teacher, working in the mainstream and with children who had Additional Support Needs, before becoming a registered storyteller on the Scottish Storytelling Centre’s Directory, in 2009. She has been a committed Christian since the age of 16 and with her husband Neil, attends Hopehall Evangelical Church in Paisley. Anne loves telling Biblical stories to all age groups, from babies and toddlers to the elderly in care homes. She is enthusiastic and knowledgeable about developing storytelling skills in others through CPD and workshops and has done so with PGCE and PGDE students, Early Years practitioners, Newly Qualified Teachers to adults working in various Christian church settings. Her emphasis is to provide an experience which enables every participant to leave her training ready to put into action what they have learnt.
Anne brings to her storytelling, enthusiasm and passion coupled with insights from her various previous professions. Her style is very interactive and participative, engaging the audience actively in her stories – “Eye to eye, mind to mind, heart to heart”.
