Using technology to share the Easter message

On the Saturday between Good Friday and Easter Sunday, together with the local Parish Church, Hollywood Christian Life Centre in Birmingham ran an Easter trail in their local park.  They used the benefits of technology and put up posters around the park with QR codes on.  Each QR code took people to a video telling part of the Easter story with both churches having recorded two videos each.

Once each video had been watched people could come and get a goody bag with chocolate and an Easter book.  As Steve Crosthwaite, the pastor, says, “We very quickly gave away 200 goody bags and wished we had double that amount available.  With the number of views on the videos and the number of people in the park during day we are confident that around 600 people heard the Gospel that day!  We have also seen new faces at our mid-week children’s club since this event and we are really encouraged by it.”
