Free Hugs 5The Firestarters team have been at it again!

The team were out in force on Saturday 15 April 2017. Made of people from across a number of Christian expressions in the Grays area, the monthly outreach team has added Free Hugs to their monthly ‘spiritual readings’ outreach in Grays Market.

Why free hugs?

Because when a believer hugs another person, in faith, something of the love of Jesus, the kingdom and heaven is released – blessing, healing, transformation.

And lots of smiles.

Even people who don’t want a hug, smile when offered.

Being Easter, the team offered folk a Happy Easter and God’s blessings over them. There was a constant stream of people wanting free hugs over a period of three hours.

Meanwhiile, other team members handed out free Easter chocolates and gave ‘spiritual readings’ – words of encouragement from God for people chosing from a selction of images one that seems relevant right now, or a picture to which they are drawn for some reason. Literature was handed out when appropriate.

Scientific fact! A few hugs a day will…

  • boost immunity
  • increase oxytocin levels
  • reduce blood pressure
  • lower stress levels
