A Welcoming church

Wednesdays 6th October, 10th November and 12th January 7.15-9.15pm
St Andrew’s Church, Church Street, Rugby, CV21 3PT

As our churches reopen, it brings a real opportunity to pause and reflect on how we can be increasingly welcoming in our spaces, our worship and our activities. Over these sessions we will look at different aspects of our welcome and sense of belonging; thinking about people finding out about us, coming for the first time, those settling in and those who have been committed members for a long time. We will share experiences and have opportunities for you to reflect on and discuss what welcome does and could look like in your own church.
