Key to Life is returning to Hampshire

Key to Life is back in Hampshire in June, I am contacting schools this week to see if they will have it. Please pray for a good response.
Key to Life is a cutting-edge, mobile experience, sharing the story of Jesus through a unique and immersive lesson. Using floor-to-ceiling touch screens, children can watch films, interact with games and quizzes and take part in small group discussions – helping them explore what Christians believe, and understand how the story of Jesus is the key to Christianity.

“We are currently doing a series on the book of Luke with our fellowship. I came across your notes and your offer to supply the Power Point that goes along with it. Please may I ask that you send it through to me. I really enjoyed your illustrations and the simple way you unpacked this passage and made it challenging to us today.”

Speakers Corner. London

One-to-One Evangelism Hyde Park, speakers corner. London

“We Christians sometimes think we need a plan for evangelism. I don’t think Jesus had an evangelism plan. I think He just interacted with the people He came into contact with.” ~ Matt Diaz

Speakers Corner in London’s Hyde Park is the oldest free speech platform in the world. People won the right to speak in mass protests in the 1860s and early 1870s. Some people believe the tradition is connected to the right of the condemned to a last speech before being hung at the Tyburn gallows, a practice that stopped at the end of the 18th century. Every Sunday people from all sorts of convictions come to Hyde Park in the afternoon to spead their message or to have fun.
