Stop for the One is a monthly outreach which occurs on a Saturday afternoon. Christians from Holy Trinity, St. Mungo’s and ESST join together to go out into the community and allow people to taste and see God’s goodness. Each Saturday starts with prayer and worship where we seek the Lord and His heart for the community. Then those who have gathered decide what activities they want to do in order to bless Wester Hailes. These activities include:
- Treasure hunting
- Healing on the Streets (HOTS)
- Gift give away
- Prophetic Art
- Prophetic Postcards
- Blackboard Questions
- Blessing Table
- Litter picking
- Offering free hugs
- Random acts of kindness
- Prayer Walking
A Bit of History: ‘Stop for the One’ really came from hearing Heidi Baker speak about love having to look like something and seeing the amazing work that Iris ministries are doing in Mozambique. We were also really encouraged by Chris Duffett who led us on a weekend of getting out to bless Wester Hailes in all kinds of creative ways.
The remaining 2017 dates are:
- Saturday 26th August
- Remainder to be confirmed…
The timings are below:
- 2pm Meet at Holy Trinity Sanctuary
- 2:30pm Go out into Wester Hailes
- 3:45 Come back to share testimony
- 4pm Finish
