You are invited to Back to Church Sunday
last updated on: 5th Jul 2013
Everyone is welcome to any church throughout the year. With well over a thousand different churches in Leicester and Leicestershire, from very small to many hundreds of people, from a traditional style to much more contemporary there is a wide range to choose from. However, we realise that going to church for the first time, or returning after a time away can sometimes be a daunting experience. And so, on Sunday 29th September there is a specific invitation to anyone who might be curious to try out church without any expectation that you’ll keep coming (although you’d be very welcome to!). Our experience is that it is less daunting visiting if you know others will be there in the same boat.
Special services are being held across Leicestershire (some are more traditional, others more contemporary, some more reflective, others more experiential, some more formal and others very informal) please contact Barry on email@example.com with what you’d like and he’ll gladly supply more information about a suitable church near you.
You may ask ‘why are you doing this? Is this about filling pews, getting more money or trying to get more people to fill the coffee or flower rota?!’ A fair question. We believe God works. Each week we see Him transforming peoples lives, bringing wholeness, healing and purpose. Jesus Himself said, ‘I have come that you may have life, and life in all its fullness’. We long for every person in Leicester and Leicestershire to experience what this full life is about, but we realise that over the years sometimes the church hasn’t been very good at sharing this with others. Where we’ve let you down, we are sorry, and would love for you to try us again.
All the special services on Sunday 29th September 2013 are designed for you, with opportunities to find out and experience more if you would like.
