A Season of Invitation 

A Season of Invitation began as ‘Back to Church Sunday’ in 2004, which was an annual opportunity for churches across the UK and abroad to invite people to come with them to church. Now five invitational services are resourced because people are much more likely to come to church and keep coming if they’re invited several times:

  1. Back to Church Sunday (September)
  2. Harvest (October)
  3. Remembrance (November)
  4. Christmas Starts (early December)
  5. Christmas (December)
