Welcome to Reach Happy new year! As we look towards Easter on 12 April we can be encouraged that last year, the Church of England reported record numbers of people attending church on Easter Day. We may be an increasingly secular and divided nation, but we are still spiritually hungry. As the Church, we must be ready to communicate to everyone who comes through the door or even just walks past, that Jesus died and rose for the sake of the world, that he loves them, that he welcomes them,

and that in him is unshakeable hope. CPO as a charity exists to help churches help people encounter Christ. This issue of Reach is packed with resources, inspiration and tools to help you reach out this Easter. We look forward to hearing your stories about the impact of your welcome.

How to make the most of our Easter resources 2

1

Choose ideas and designs for your church, friends and community. We’ve made it easy to find prices and the formats you need for your church communications. Find even more resources online at cpo.org.uk

3

Everything will arrive at your home or church for you to display and distribute. A personal invitation is best, so equip and inspire your church to share with friends and the community. Make use of our matching social media images – find them on our website at cpo.org.uk/digital

4

You can customise these designs these ways: Online using our customisation tool, for a simple smart result for £5; with the help of our professional studio from £20 (just email with what you want); or for just £4.99 per month, have a go yourself at churchcommscreate.com (ask us if you can’t find the template you’re looking for). If you want any more information call us on 01903 263354 or email enquiries@cpo.org.uk

Not digital vs print: just communication We produce design ranges in different formats so that everything can match: posters, social media, PowerPoints and handouts. Many of our designs are also available as downloads. Consistency matters because it builds familiarity which in turn leads to trust. We need at least 7 ‘touchpoints’ with a visual image before it registers. The world is busy – so use your design in as many ways as possible. If you have any questions give us a call on 01903 263354 or email enquiries@cpo.org.uk

More options at cpo.org.uk or give us a call.

Folded leaflet with message (MFDL) A4 folded to DL (roll-fold) – paper stock. Our design on the front and a pre-printed outreach message, on the inside left-hand side, that relates to the design.

New HopeC5200MFDL

Matthew 28:6C6031MFDL

The following words are in the leaflet above. Use these invitations as an order of service or as an evangelistic tract. These designs have a simple and different gospel message, relating to their image. You can find wording for other designs online at cpo.org.uk/leaflet.

Hope for Tomorrow C5800MFDL

If you’re reading this, it’s pretty much guaranteed you’ve either been disappointed when someone close to you has broken a promise – or you’ve made a promise yourself which you haven’t kept. As human beings, we mess up. This hurts us, hurts others – and separates us from God. It’s the reason our world is in such a mess.

Love Without Limits C5796MFDL

The Easter story provides the climax of God’s extraordinary answer to this problem – the death and resurrection of Jesus. Jesus promised his followers before he was crucified that it wasn’t the end of the story, and he would return. So the empty tomb discovered on what we now call Easter Sunday wasn’t just Jesus keeping his promise to his followers. It was God launching a fresh start for every man, woman and child for the rest of time – forgiveness, hope and a real future. If that sounds like a promise worth exploring, join our celebrations this Easter – it could be the best decision you ever make.

BANNERS He is RisenC4966LMB

Use large scale designs to let the world know Easter is about more than chocolate. Banners are a great way to catch the attention of those who have no intention of going to church, and to persuade those who might be undecided, or just put a big message in a public place.

Roll-up banners Many churches don’t meet in a purpose-built building, but rent space in schools, sports halls or even cinemas. These spaces are flexible and economical but do require some extra effort to alert people to the fact you are worshipping God in this unconventional location. Our roll-up banners are portable, customisable and eye-catching and a good way to identify yourselves to passers-by and newcomers.

OUTREACH Showing and sharing the love of Christ It can be handy for churches to have a few facts and figures up their sleeve. For example, did you know that YouGov research in 2014 found that 43% children aged 8-15 had never read, seen or heard the story of the crucifixion of Jesus? Research has also suggested that only half of the children in church will keep their faith as adults. The biggest influence on this? Family. This means we need to communicate more. You don’t need to have children to raise the generation. We all play our part. A secular survey in October 2018 found this: “a widespread view of the Church as old fashioned and ‘not for me’, and sometimes negative experiences when people attend, but there is a commonly held view that churches are welcome places for everyone”. You might be surprised that a huge 67% of people in the UK know a practising Christian. We know

that people are spiritually hungry, and 1 in 5 people we talk to about Jesus want to know more (more at talkingjesus.org). Our Easter challenge is this: what can we do, individually and together, to show and share the love of Christ to our neighbours and friends? Some ideas: • Encourage your local school to teach the Easter story • Equip families to pray with and for their children (p.26) • Engage with your local community, perhaps with an egg hunt (p. 27) • Envision your public spaces with artwork that points to Christ. 2020 is an exciting year when many Christian initiatives and events are taking place for us to invite friends. Look out for ways to get involved locally. advance2020.org

Why? Easter Egg Hunts have grown in popularity with families. Most are run as secular events in historic attractions. The 2020 National Real Easter Egg Hunt is a way for churches to engage with this culture, have fun and share the Easter story.

Easter eggs are a symbol of hope and new life. For some they represent the stone that was rolled away from the tomb of Jesus – a reminder of the first Easter Sunday. ‘The Real Easter Egg’, logo and supplied artwork are registered copyright of The Meaningful Chocolate Company.

KINDNESS We love because Christ first loved us. Kindness without agenda, with genuine selfless love, is enough. Clothe yourself with compassion, and consider this: • If you leave something tangible behind, to look at or read, it might be kept, read again, even treasured • We don’t receive cards like we used to. This means they mean even more. • Words have power. Pictures can inspire. Use both. We heard of someone who got baptised recently: ‘the pastor was always welcoming, always kind, remembered my name, even though I didn’t come to church. It made me want to know more.’ Pray as you use these resources. They could be more significant than they seem.

Domestic Abuse & the Church.

Life is a mixture of happiness and pain; of laughter and tears; of celebration and grief; of soaring and crawling. For some, life brings more joy than sorrow; for others, life is hard with only rare moments of real joy. For us all there are times when we struggle. This book uses verses from the Bible as a means of offering hope and comfort to those who recognise their need of God’s help in their struggles.
