What does a truly welcoming church look like?
A welcoming team?
A welcoming building?
A welcoming people?
Answer: all three! plus more!
Andrew Brannigan, Development Officer in the Diocese of Down and Dromore, will guide us in thinking through some of the issues involved in building a genuinely welcoming church and how we can apply some important principles in our own parishes, whether they be small rural or large urban ones. Andrew has recently produced a resource for churches wanting to develop a culture of welcome and openness.
Parishes are encouraged to bring at least three people so that you can work out as you go along how the principles can be applied in your own situation.
For churches of all sizes and shapes!
Please book with Gavin at the Diocesan Office by Thursday 18th October: (NI) 02871 262440 (RI) 00442871 262440
This event is organised by the Board of Mission and Unity.
