You may remember engaging with 40 days of good news in 2016. You’ll be pleased to hear that in 2017 there will be 20% more good news! Or at least, another week when you can choose to make the most of every opportunity to show and tell the good news of Jesus where you are.

We’ll be sending out our weekly animated challenges again, adapted and rebooted, but first here’s a trailer with a challenge for your whole church (click on ‘vimeo’ to download a copy)

50 days of good news trailer 2017 from Ruth Whiter on Vimeo.

What happened to the conversations you started and the new contacts you made during last year’s 40 days of good news? Could you follow up some of those people with an offer to find out more? We’d like to challenge each church in WEBA to run one of the following courses – either during the 50 days between Easter and Pentecost, or at another time if that’s more convenient:

The Alpha Course

Puzzling Questions

The Happiness Lab

Christianity Explored

Life Explored

We’re not thinking large scale – most of these will probably work best with a small group in a home (or similar) environment. So it may be a way to help two or three contacts you’ve made take the next step on their journey of faith.
