Welcome Matters

Saturday 16 June 10am

A chance to look at how we welcome people!

Recent studies indicate that most visitors decide within the first 5 minutes whether or not to return to a Church.
The key factor in that decision is whether or not they feel welcome.

Words of welcome in notice sheets, while important, are meaningless if they aren’t accompanied by welcoming people.

As our services and celebrations grow and evolve, we are looking to strengthen our welcome team and be more pro-active in our welcome across all congregations

Please come to a session to re-envision our welcome on Saturday 16 June from 10am-11-45am in St Michael’s Centre Auditorium

Come and discover how we can become an even more welcoming church.

What will the session be like?

Together we will discover how to welcome new people into St Michael’s. We will think through what’s good about our current approach and where we can improve. We will learn new skills that are simple, but effective in making our welcome better.

One person’s welcome is another person’s ‘too much’. We want to make people feel welcome, but we don’t want to scare them away by being too overpowering.

Come along to discover how to spot the difference!

We’re asking everyone to let us know their views on this welcome audit and bring it along on the day

Please let us know whether you’re coming by responding here

The morning will run from 9.45am for coffee and will start at 10am.  We will finish by 11.45am
