One weekend. Multitudes of personal invitations to those outside our churches. All with a simple request to please ‘Be our guest’.
Offering a welcome to those who may just have been waiting to be invited.
Simple? Yes. And it is something every church can be part of.
But not ‘easy’. First we must face the fear that holds us back. And that’s part of the plan.
Beyond the walls of our churches are almost 3 million people who are open to being invited. Yet this is not happening – making it the greatest missed opportunity for churches.
To put it simply
Vast numbers would accept an invitation. But those who could invite are bottling it.
Waiting are many people ready to say ‘yes’– to an invitation to church or a suitable event. Or who deserve to be invited even if not yet ready to accept. However, when it comes to inviting, the barrier is fear.
That’s because what’s needed is a new mind-set regarding how we measure ‘success’ and how we trust God to be God for us.
This is the reason for The National Weekend of Invitation. It exists
- To equip churches seize the opportunity to invite
- To offer a united focus for churches to invite
- To see church members grow in faith
