Anyone attending church should be made to feel welcome, not just by the clergy but by every member of every church.
Everybody Welcome is the complete course to transform your church by improving your approach to newcomers. Believing that welcoming is a ministry for every member of the church, it offers guidance for your entire congregation and will help every individual play their part.
Based on principles universal to every church, Everybody Welcome is for every church-going Christian who believes that belonging to their church is good for others as well as themselves. The members' manual is needed by every person taking part in the course and provides an overview and introduction to the 5 sessions in the leaders' manual and DVD.
