In 2019 the Welcome Guide was produced by the Growing the Rural Church team to help churches look at their buildings with fresh eyes. This guide is full of lots of ideas as to how we can warm up our welcome and show our churches are open to all.
Please note: The guide is 26 pages long. If you would prefer a hard copy, please ask your Rural Dean or email Katharine Otley
