Back to Church Sunday
Back to Church Sunday is an initiative that involves many different churches across the UK, we are pleased to be part of this year's invitation for people to come to church on Sunday 29th September 2013.
Each year participating churches share their good news stories following Back to Church Sunday. Here are just a few from previous years:
I was thanked for sending the invite and told, “I have wanted to come back for some time and this just gave me the nudge I needed.”
Most noticeable was the increased number of children, which changed the atmosphere of the church.
“She wouldn't let me not come! I really enjoyed it. Now that I'm back I will keep on coming”- the comment from the neighbour of a church member. The church member was 90, so no-one is too old to make a difference to someone else.
Most of those who came back are now still coming, some weekly!
The increase was about 50% or more on the usual congregation. One lady reported she did not like church but 'really enjoyed this.'
One man said, “If church is as good as this every week than I’ll be back.” He has been every Sunday since.
There is now a buzz about the simplicity of inviting others to come Back to Church. It has been great to see people praying for and inviting their friends and neighbours.
For one person, the invitation was something they had been waiting for.
