Mikey has been blogging about Christmas and it’s usefulness in evangelism. We had Carols last night and it went gangbusters. In terms of number of new converts though it was (as Mikey would suggest) minimal! Probably none. Why will we keep doing Carols???
– it’s the easiest thing we ever do to invite friends and family along to
– the church makes introductory contacts with a whole host of unbelievers, or even disenchanted Christians looking for a church.
– it kicks off our evangelistic efforts over the summer season
– hence provides an opportunity to invite people to Christmas Day Church and WAVE (our summer kids mission)
As one arrow in the quiver i reckon Carols is a great thing to put on as a church.
