Season of Invitation

Back to Church Sunday began in 2004 as an annual opportunity for churches across the UK and abroad to invite people to come with them to church. Ten years on, we're entering a new season, moving from one invitational service to five: 

  • Back to Church Sunday (September)
  • Harvest (October)
  • Remembrance (November)
  • Christmas Starts (early December)
  • Christmas (December)

The reason for this change is that research shows people are much more likely to come to church and keep coming if they’re invited several times. So we want to build a Season of Invitation, with five invitational moments coming one after the other.

Churches can order special packs containing invitation card for each type of service, posters and menu cards.
