We decided to offer messages of hope.

To do this we wrote messages on suitable sized stones, using permanent markers. These stones were then offered to anyone who wanted one.

A further two methods were used to give out the stones. On one occasion a pile of stones were placed on the floor and people were invited to take a stone. On a different occasion the stones were placed in a variety of public locations.


This activity was designed to encourage people, using non threatening approaches, to introduce the hope God brings.

This is a non-directive approach to evangelism and took place in a local coffee shop, while a small team of three sat nearby and prayed quietly.


People were encouraged and some felt God spoke to them through the messages. One man picked up a message that said ‘peace be with you.’ He said “that was exactly what I needed.”
