NEW Creating a Culture of Invitation in your Church Book

Michael Harvey’s much anticipated second book, Creating a Culture of Invitation in your Church will be published on 17 July 2015. You can pre-order your copy here for delivery in July.

We like to think of our churches as welcoming. Michael Harvey, an expert on church growth, asks, “How welcoming can we be if we don’t take our welcome outside with the gift of an invitation?” God sent his son to invite us all into a relationship, and so to be like God is to be a person who invites.

During the decade that he has been developing Back to Church Sunday, Michael Harvey has conducted an extensive study on the seemingly simple subject of “invitation”. Over 650 times in 12 countries he has asked: “Why don’t we invite our friends to take a closer look at Christ?”

Exploring the subjects of rejection and acceptance he examines where we have gone wrong. Reviewing best practice ideas gleaned from trying to establish a culture of invitation he considers what we might do to address the situation and put it right.
