Description

We asked Asda if we could use their premises, to do something for the community: they happily agreed. Three of us worked together on this activity. On this occasion we gave out free mince pies and offered to help people make Christmas cards.

Rationale

This activity seemed like a drop in the ocean with regard to all the shopping going on at Christmas. Yet, it was a simple reminder of God's love and grace to us.

Outcome

This small gesture went really well. I did not meet one person out of the hundreds who responded to this news in any negative way. On the contrary, people seemed to go out of their way to express their thanks for the reminder of what Christmas was truly all about. Somehow it seemed fitting to stand with a small humble stall, with a tray of mince pies offered for free, outside a massive supermarket with all the bling, gifts and shopping.

Other requirements

This active idea does not have any additional requirements
