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's five interactive sessions will help every individual in your church to have a welcoming approach to newcomers, help you identify priorities for decision and practical change, and show how to set up a specialist Welcome Team.
To get the most out of the Everybody Welcome course, the leaders' manual can be used alongside the members' manual and DVD.
Before ordination Bob Jackson was a Government Economic Adviser. After twenty years in parish ministry he joined Springboard - the Archbishop of Canterbury's initiative to encourage, renew and mobilise the Church for evangelism. He then spent five years as Archdeacon of Walsall with responsibility for the Diocesan Growth Strategy in the Diocese of Lichfield.
'A practical tool that will help churches grow ... What makes this especially useful is that it is for ordinary churches, not just for the big and successful ... "Everybody welcome" is written for an Anglican context but it would easily swap across to other churches and denominations ... Many churches will benefit enormously from this straightforward course.' -- Robert Freeman
