Back to Church Sunday: A Season of InvitationAugust 31, 2015
Back to Church Sunday has been running for about 10 years now and is the last Sunday of September. The idea is that people are invited back to church: people who are out of the way of coming to church for whatever reason are invited back to specific services. This has now been extended to a season of services throughout Autumn: Back to Church Sunday, Harvest, Remembrance, First Sunday of Advent and Christmas Services.
So how would it look if each one of us was to invite someone back to church during a season of services here at Max West, especially as we celebrate worshipping God for 150 years on the same site?
What I’m asking everyone to consider is who they could invite back to church on the following specific Sundays:
- Harvest – 27th September
- Remembrance – 8th November
- First Sunday in Advent – 29th November
- Christmas Services: 20th December, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day
If we all invited just one person back to church then it would make a difference. By the way, don’t worry whether or not the person you invite will say yes or no – just extend the invitation and allow God to work.
