Christmas Booktable
Written by Stephen Dancer

Image Thanks to the helpful organiser of the monthly Farmers' Market in Solihull, we were able to set up a bookstall for SPC at the beginning of December. Our presence did cause some surprise - we are not farmers! But we did want to sow seed of a different kind. 

ImageThis venture was experimental but our objective was to distribute literature to Christmas shoppers which explained the gospel to people and to pass out information about SPC. 

To help, we had Chuck and Wyema with us for the day. They have been sent by their church in the US to work with immigrants in London. Chuck is a gifted violinist and so we listened to Christmas carols as we spoke with passers-by. We also had help from friends from City Evangelical Church who live in the area. 

There were plenty of conversations to be had. Some were from other local churches who were curious. We enjoyed meeting with them. Some remembered that there used to be a Solihull Presbyterian Church once before, which became a congregation of the United Reformed Church. We had some explaining to do!

Some were not Christians but were willing to stop and talk. We were glad to be able to share our faith with them. 

ImageOverall, this was a useful project with some lessons learned for the future. We hope to organise another one for January 2007. Please pray!
