OKEHAMPTON churches have joined forces to help put out the story of Jesus — a free video is being offered to all households in the town.

As a trial, 'Christians Together' which consists of All Saints Parish Church, Fairplace Methodist Church, New Life (Assemblies of God), Okehampton Baptist Church, St Boniface (Roman Catholic) and Inspiration (Church of the Nations), have started distributing the videos on the Hunters Gate estate.

Project co-ordinator Mike Davies, who is the minister at Inspiration in Okehampton, said: 'The aim is to let every household have a video which tells the full story of Jesus Christ, from the virgin birth, his death on the cross to his resurrection.'

'It is good to see Christians working together on such a project. We have a good selection of Christian Churches in Okehampton to cater for the majority of tastes and we are hoping people will feel free to come and visit any of them and ask questions or just come and be part of the family.'

The video is made by Warner Brothers and over two billion people worldwide have seen it so far.
