The postcard said free BBQ food, free drinks and free Bibles and that’s exactly what it was!
This was the fifth such event, hosted by the Plymouth Brethren Christian Church on Saturday 4th April at their Gospel Hall in Burgess Hill adjacent to Oakmeeds Community College.
Postcard invites were distributed in the town centre during the morning by persons from the PBCC to draw many members of the public to attend and claim their free burger in a bun, muffins, chocolates, Bibles and gospel tracts.
One older man said who visited the event said “I’m a pensioner and I appreciate a bit of Christian kindness”.
Another person exclaimed in disbelief “It’s all free? This is the best Saturday in my whole entire life!”
A table was set aside for young children to colour illustrated Bible texts. One visitor said the gospel texts have “profound and relevant messages” and another said they were “inspiring”.
As one man left, he voiced the feelings of many by saying “I just wanted to say thank you – it’s been a lovely afternoon”.
Members from the church preach the gospel 6 days a week in the Martlets shopping centre and they hold a gospel preaching in the Oakmeeds gospel hall regularly.
