A well-kept secret...

Hello.  How can I help you?  

That’s right.  We’re here to aid churches like yours in your outreach.  Every day we send personal replies to people wanting to find out more about Jesus.  We give them time, a listening ear, and a theologically rigorous, non-political, ecumenical view point.  That’s why people trust us, and keep coming back again and again to deepen their faith, find a local church or Christian course, and often start their Christian journey. 

It’s so exciting to help people in their faith journey, and a wonderful privilege to be part of a charity that provides this service for free.  

But it’s a well-kept secret!  

If more Christians knew that they could point enquirers our way, and they would be in safe hands, we would be inundated - and we’d love that!  And it’s so easy - just get them to go to Christianity.org.uk and fill out the contact form.  We’ll take it from there!

PASS IT ON!

You are receiving this newsletter because you are a key CEA contact.

Please use your position to forward it on, so that more people
can be involved in spreading the gospel.  Thank you.

What's new?

We’re working on a new version of our Christianity.org.uk website, that will less fussy, easily searchable, and will enable people to contact us much more easily. It’s due for the upgrade later this year. Watch this space!


Meanwhile, we’ve placed an ad (right) in the upcoming issue of Hope magazine, which goes out to 30,000 homes across the UK.  Order your copy here.  

Easter resources

Our partners at Hope have produced the engaging 'Who do you say I am?' booklet for you to use with your churches this Easter (21 April).  Head over to Hope to order your copies.

What are people asking?

Such a broad range of people get in touch from all over the world.  

Recently, we’ve been contacted by a number of Muslim converts who are afraid for their life because of their new found Christian faith.  

We provide confidential counsel, Christian guidance and prayer, whilst putting them in touch with organisations able to help with the practical side.  Please pray for their safety, and that they might be able to grow as Christians.

We’ve also had a number of enquiries from young people who have been brought up by atheist parents, and now want to become Christians.  This is very encouraging! We support them in their Christian life, whilst encouraging them to respect and honour their parents. Please pray for their continuing Christian journeys, and that they might be a witness to those around them.

We make a difference!

"Many thanks for your heartfelt, sincere reply."

"Thank you for your reply and you offer of supportive counsel, which I immensely appreciate."

"I truly appreciate not only the fast response, but more importantly the genuine one – part of me was expecting to get a form letter reply, followed by endless requests for money!!"  
 
"Thank you very much for the thoughtful reply."

"I am really grateful for that time God used you to be there for me."

Help us to reach more people

Pray: Become a valued regular pray-er and we’ll send you weekly anonymised prayer requests, by clicking here.

Donate: The Christian Enquiry Agency delights in helping people find out more about Christianity, and encourage them on their journey towards a relationship with God.  We are a charity, and exist solely on grants and donations, so anything you can give would be greatly appreciated and go towards bringing more people to Christ.  Giving is easy, just click here.

Share: Since the GDPR regulations came in, we (through no fault of our own!) have lost a number of our newsletter recipients.  If you are reading this, then you are special indeed! Please use your privilege to forward this ‘good news’ letter on to friends, family and colleagues.  They can also sign up for themselves here.

Every week prayers, questions, requests for conversations, or for a book about Jesus are left on our website. Some ask for information about local churches as well. It is a privilege to be able to help people in their journey of faith in this way.

As Baroness Maeve Sherlock, one of our Patrons put it:  I am pleased to be a patron of an organisation that tells so many people about Jesus Christ. Every communication in print or online can help people find answers about Christianity.
