What is it?

A simple way to mobilise your Church, Christian Union, Bible Study or Work-based group at Easter? Set up a collection Station for Easter eggs and encourage everyone to donate. Give the eggs to the poor and marginalised locally as a simple act of loving kindness. Its so much fun and provides an easy way to start a conversation, form a friendship and transform your local community. 

How can I get involved?

We invite you to launch a ShareTheMiracle Station encouraging leaders, members, other groups that meet on the premises and the wider community to donate an Egg for someone locally. * Whilst most Churches will collect chocolate eggs, some Churches may choose to collect an alternative…

We love ShareTheMiracle here at The Beeches. It helps us to fulfil our calling to share God’s love and the Good News of Jesus with those around us by living out His kindness in ways which connect.

For the last several Easters we have collected as many eggs as possible (500 in 2014 and 1000 every year since) to give away to people in our community. We gather on a Saturday morning a couple of weeks before Easter, pray and then go out onto the streets outside our local shops and door to door simply giving away the eggs along with an invitation to our Easter services. We have been amazed by the responses we have received and the opportunities God has opened up to share his love. A very simple act of kindness opening the door for people to come closer to God. People in our church had opportunity to pray for people in our community, share the Gospel, bring smiles to many faces and our Easter services have also been full: Superb! 

It has also been incredibly encouraging to see the way God has worked in us as a church as we have stepped out in faith in this way. Bringing us closer to him, closer to each other and giving us more of his heart for those around us. New friendships have formed, people are more confident about sharing their faith and there’s a real buzz about reaching out to the community with God’s love.

We will definitely be taking part again this year and look forward once again to seeing God at work in the lives of people in our neighbourhood.

Case Study: City Life Church 

Walking around today blessing the Baffins community with Easter Eggs on behalf of ShareTheMiracle and City Life Church Portsmouth was priceless. Loved seeing the shop owners faces and all of their clientele as we gave each one of them an Egg and a card. It was the highlight for me of our Easter Extravaganza especially having our World Changers CLC Children and the Lord Mayor Lee M Mason go with us as well. Will be back around soon to meet all of you! Happy Easter! We gave out 150 eggs both on the streets as well as to our Not Forgotten over 60’s group and we blessed many many shops and people walking down the streets. It was truly an amazing experience! One of our children even jumped on a city bus when it stopped and blessed the driver! Her own doing! She is 10.

Case Study: Christians in Government

We were delighted to welcome Dan and members of the ShareTheMiracle team to the Home Office to mark our commemoration of Easter as part of a series of events including a talk by Bishop Angaelos of the Orthodox Church to raise awareness of the persecution of Christians in the Middle East.  We gave over 200 Easter eggs, donated by staff, to interested colleagues along with an invitation to our Christians in Government Easter Service and a ‘Why Easter?’ booklet.  ShareTheMiracle is a wonderful initiative that allows us to convey something of the grace and goodness of God in an appropriate way. I cannot commend the initiative highly enough. It is so easy to bless others in this way.
