On Sunday we heard more about the upcoming guest event on Monday 6th November. Here’s a recap of everything you need to know and some ideas about how to make the most of the evening.

What’s the title all about?
The questions ‘What next?’ and ‘How’s it going to end?’ help us to ask questions of the world around us and ourselves. Whether it’s global events or more personal news, the things happening around us act like interruptions to the narrative of life and should make us ask some simple but deep questions about life. The good news is that Jesus tells us about the big ‘what next?’ – the offer of a place at the heavenly banquet (Matthew 8:5-13).

What can I do?
Pray
- We can all get involved with the event by praying about it. And there’s a lot to pray for! You can pray for boldness and courage in your own evangelism, pray for people to come along with soft hearts and ‘ears to hear’ the good news of Jesus, pray for William Taylor as he prepares the talk and interviews and pray that many people would come along to Christianity Explored which starts the week after.
Get talking - You can pick up one of the ‘How’s it going to end?’ badges at St Helens. Wear it out and about and see what conversations get going when people ask you about it. Don’t rush too quickly to talk about the event – the conversation itself is worth your time as it may have prompted someone to think about more significant, spiritual things for the first time in a while. In the midst of a busy, distracted world we can help people take a first step, which is to pause and consider the world they live in.
The flyers, badges and video are deliberately thought provoking, to try and help you get a conversation started. Think about who you could share things with and give some thought to what you’re going to say as you do.
Come along - Sharing the good news about Jesus is a team effort, so come along even if your friends didn’t take up the invitation. You can help to welcome other’s guests, or pitch in with some of the jobs that need to be done behind the scenes. You can find out more about specific jobs that you can volunteer for at your small group or on Sundays.

Rest amid the chaos

What is it like to come to a saviour who is both unimaginably powerful and yet full of tender compassion? In Matthew 8 to 10 we read about a series of events, each of which involves Jesus acting in extraordinary might, but often to just one or two…
