For individuals

What’s Your Story? is an extremely versatile tool that can be used to help deepen relationships, bridge divisions and cultivate social cohesion in many different contexts. The power of story can be shared among friends, families, small groups, entire churches, schools and workplaces.

Below we’ve linked to all our recommended courses and resources for running What’s Your Story? in a standalone context. If you haven’t already, please sign up to access all the courses.

How to run WYS

  • Look through the courses and resources below and choose the approach you think will work for your context.
  • Most courses work best for groups of eight people or less, so gather some people to do this journey with.
  • Whether you’re a new or experienced facilitator, we recommend you go through our short course on how to facilitate a small group before leading a What’s Your Story? course.
  • You can use the online course structure and work through the content by downloading the relevant outline and videos for each week, or you can purchase hard copies of the DVDs and booklets for your chosen course.
  • If you’d like to run What’s Your Story? in a larger context, view our resources for church, school and workplaces, or browse our full range of courses and resources. 
  • If you would like help with running What’s Your Story? please contact our team.
