Through research and testing resources, the Church of England is discovering how repeated invitation really encourages people to come back to church.

The best news in the research is that families want and expect churches to keep in touch with them. The following occasions are special events which offer the perfect opportunity to invite and welcome families back.

  • Godparents’ Sunday April 30 2017

    The unique role of godparents will be celebrated for the second time on 30th April 2017. This is a great opportunity to invite recent baptism families to come along with godparents to a special service, and to involve all those in the congregation who are godparents or godchildren too. Find resources here to help create a really special event.
