Social distancing means church fetes, Fun Days and community festivals have to be different this year – but there are still loads of ways to bring your community together. Check out our ideas for Virtual Fun Days and socially distanced events to have fun with neighbours, make new connections and build stronger communities. You can use these ideas with a few friends, family or colleagues; the groups that meet in your church building or your whole community. We’d love to know what you do to bring your community together, so please post your photos and videos on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram with #FunDay and tag @HopeTogether
Want to see how a massive Fun Day works? Check out the programme from the Eden Project programme for their Virtual Big Lunch to see how a whole weekend can work online
The HOPE for All magazine is an undated resource you can give away at any time of year at socially distanced events or as a giveaway distributed with an invitation to your Virtual Fun Day. You can also include copies in food parcels distributed to people in need in your community. Our website hopeinfo.org.uk includes a virtual version of the magazine and has a range of features to share with those exploring faith and looking for hope.
