Bags of hope at Halloween 

Laird Street Baptist Church took to the streets on Halloween night and no, we were not trick or treating, writes minister Cathy Buntin

Bag of HopeWe were giving out UCB Bags of Hope. A partnership of UCB, One Hope and World Vision, each bag contained a full colour Bible-based booklet, the Bible App for Kids Book of Hope, some sweets and chocolates. We gave out 200 bags to people passing the church and knocking on the doors of the local community. 

What a great opportunity to connect with the people who pass our church and live in close proximity. People were blessed with these bags of hope and we were really encouraged by the response we received.

We trust God that people's lives will be changed by the books they read and the love shown to them by our church fellowship. We even had Honey, one of our deacon's dogs, helping us.
