Over the past year, Michael Harvey has been working closely with a number of churches around the country, mentoring them and helping them to develop a culture of invitation within their congregation. One such church is Bellshill West, which has seen over 20 people coming to church as a result of an invitation. Here is Rev. Calum Stark sharing a little more about the response experienced there.
Following on from our successful road show with Michael Harvey last month, where over 200 people representing over 80 churches attended, we will be releasing a new blog post at least every two weeks from now until the Weekend of Invitation main event, set for June 2019. Of course, you don’t have to wait until then to invite someone along to a church event, and so this blog will look at some of the reasons why we don’t invite others, and what we can do to overcome those reasons, as well as some practical tips for events.
Welcome to our Weekend of Invitation blog, where, over the coming months, we will be posting regular blog posts regarding all things invitation, and looking at how we can develop more of a culture of invitation within our congregations. As well as practical ideas for what events you could put on, we will also be looking at those who are currently working towards invitation becoming a reality within their church, and gaining some insight and wisdom along the way.
