Here’s some feedback from people who have used the HOPE for Every Home giveaways.
Line dancing friends
I just want to congratulate you and your team for the excellent Hope Magazine. I have given these out to my line dancing friends and our neighbours and they have been very well received. We are having our neighbours in our street in on Saturday for a cuppa , cake and chat and we pray that there will be opportunities to share the love of Jesus in our conversations.
Onley Prison Annual Carol Service
Bishop Christopher from the Diocese of Coventry spoke at the Onley Prison Annual Carol Service and said that more than 200 churches in the Midlands area had given out the magazine over the Christmas season. The Bishop left a copy of the magazine for every prisoner at Onley prison and highlighted the story of the prisoner from within the magazine.
I have just received copies of the magazine for distribution at a village Christmas Lights festival in which our church participates by providing open house and a welcoming warm place to sit and chat and enjoy seasonal refreshments.
New housing estate
1600 houses on a brand-new housing estate near a Rugby church all received a copy delivered door-to-door.
Santa’s sleigh and a goodie bag
For the past 5 or 6 years, we have owned our own Santa sleigh, which we take into our community to give rather than get. This year we will be going to approximately 2,100 houses over three nights. Each home will be given a goodie bag, which will contain chocolates, a Christmas invite and a Christmas Hope magazine.
