Back in May we changed our name to Welcome Church. That change is part of our new approach to connecting with the people of Woking.
This September we have an awesome event planned to tell the town all about it: the Welcome Woking Fun Day, on Saturday 22nd September, 11am – 3pm in Woking Park.
This is a free event that has something for everyone: a petting zoo, live music, ice creams, BBQ, tea & scones, face painting, bouncy castle and youth zone … and it’s all free!
For our church this event may be the biggest opportunity in our history to connect en masse with Woking, to bless people in an extravagant way, and to introduce them to Welcome Church.
For the people of Woking this is a great chance to have a great day out with their family for free, and to experience God’s lavish and extravagant love first hand through Welcome Church.
There are three things that Welcome Church people can do to help publicise the event:
- Deliver flyers: we have 30,000 flyers to deliver and lots of this is happening through our Life Groups. You can find out how you can be involved with that through your Life Group leaders, or you can contact the church office directly
- Invite friends: a personal invitation is a great way to encourage people to come along and enjoy themselves, and this may be the easiest thing you ever get to invite people to, so do let your friends, neighbours and colleagues know about it
- Share the event on social media: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram – share the event and invite people who live nearby to come along. here is a link to the Facebook event. You can click ‘Going’ and share it as well.
Together, let’s try to invite the whole town to this event!
People can say a yes or a no; our job is simply to make the invite. And let’s pray that God would draw many to come along and have fun with us … and some may even begin a journey towards encountering Jesus.
People don’t care how much we know until they know how much we care. Let’s show the people of Woking our love, care and generosity.
