Over the last few weeks at Welcome Church we’ve launched a brand new initiative called Welcome Stories.
Welcome Stories are short videos from people in our church whose lives have been impacted for good by Jesus. You can check some of them out on our Welcome Stories website, or you can find them on our Welcome Church Facebook page, our Instagram account or our YouTube channel. There are lots more coming in the weeks ahead.
As we launch these stories week by week we want to encourage people to share them to their friends via social media. Liking them is kind of you, but sharing them is actually useful for the gospel!
Please don’t use religious language when you share them, but do perhaps use the hashtag #WelcomeStories.
You can share them on Facebook and Instagram easily by sharing the posts we’ve already made on our Welcome Church pages. You can also share them from You Tube or from the Welcome Stories website onto Twitter and other media.
Why do it?
These videos are about helping people connect to Jesus … and that is already happening. We are already seeing fruit from these stories.
So far over 28,000 people have viewed one of our Welcome Stories. Just imagine the impact we could have in Woking if everyone in our church shared these?
And of course, this is all part of the run up to the launch of our new building on January 19th. It’s part of the invitation process. We will even kick off our new year with a preaching series called “Welcome Stories”.
So let’s get sharing, let’s get praying, and let’s expect God to do big things!
I’ve put a link to one of the stories here – Enjoy!
