Valentine Day Outreach 2017

On Valentine’s Day a group of us went out to the streets of Kensington and spread some love by giving out some candy hearts to strangers.

The message behind it was short and sweet. We, the Church, wanted to remind people that God is love and love comes from God. Since God loves us we also ought to love one another (1 John 4).

It was a lot of fun, a few said no, a few hesitated until we yelled out the word ‘Free’ at them, some were surprised, a few curious and a lot were truly touched by a random act of kindness. We had a lot of fun and benefitted from it ourselves.
