In the build-up to November 11th, I spoke to so many people at events and even more online using the historical accounts of the Great War as a dramatic backdrop for the Gospel. It has taken me to different locations in the UK and particularly to the key battle sites along the Western Front in France and Belgium. Our BIG STORY short films themed around the Great War have been watched by over 100,000 people to date. On Remembrance Sunday, I presented the Gospel to 1,300 people at Kings Community Church Southampton. It was a moment I will never forget and undoubtedly one of the most powerful events I have ever been involved in. As I was speaking at that gathering, many other churches were showing the ‘Unknown Warrior’ BIG STORY film at other Remembrance Services.
I feel very humbled and privileged to have had the opportunity to reach so many with the Gospel as our nation honoured those who have fallen and suffered defending the cause of freedom. My prayer is that many of them will pursue a relationship with God and join a church.
