Description

Give a local bakery £50 to offer free food to anyone who comes in. One Sunday morning when this was tried in Peterborough, the local bakery worker was heard saying again and again, “would you like the Church to pay this for you?”. This activity was combined with 'Free Hugs' (click for Free Hugs idea).

Rationale

To convey God's grace. The free gift of salvation in a practical way.

Outcome

Some people were grateful, the homeless were fed, a local shop owner was so taken by the idea he donated a further £20 to buy more food for people.

Other requirements

This active idea does not have any additional requirements
