The Christian Enquiry Agency is celebrating 25 years of giving free, confidential, reliable information about the Christian faith to anyone who wants to know.
It is marking the anniversary with a campaign inviting people to visit the website Christianity.org.uk and to send for a free, colourful Gospel of Luke in a magazine format.
Some 50,000 postcards have been placed in cinema foyers where they will catch the eye of those who are unlikely to find their way to a church, especially younger people. Churches are placing thousands more in parent and toddler groups, outreach events and clubs for the community that meet on church premises.
The eye-catching question on the postcard is: "At what moment in your life did you feel most fully alive?" The reverse has a challenge: "It’s time you found out what Jesus said about life in his own words." All people need to do is add their details and send it to a freepost address, or use the QR code to ask for a Gospel.
Peter Graystone, the coordinator of the Christian Enquiry Agency, says: "The campaign is relentlessly positive. Like me! When people visit the website they will find information about enjoying life, how faith can improve life, and resurrection."
The Agency has been reinvigorated by Christianity.org.uk. The memorable and valuable URL was purchased in the early days of the internet for about £10. Twenty years later it has come into its own. It comes in the top three results in a Google search for ‘Christianity’ and is visited by 10,000 people every month.
The Christian Enquiry Agency is an agency of Churches Together in Britain and Ireland. It represents all denominations and all traditions of Christianity. It is funded by denominations, trusts and individual supporters.
