Thinking Ahead

During January around the Synod we shared in Easter Conversations. What do we do at Easter? What does the Bible say about Easter? What is Easter about for us? How do we go about sharing Easter with others?
Over 140 people in four different locations shared lots of ideas and thinking as to how we can engage with Holy Week and Easter and use these festivals as an opportunity for evangelism. We heard, for example, of how one church gave away hot cross buns on Good Friday. Another church celebrated Easter by giving away £1 coins as a token of the generous gift of Jesus. Lots of interesting conversations resulted from people asking why they were doing this. A third church created a Holy Week space for people to go in and reflect. Etc. etc. etc.
