Interested in Membership ?

 

 

Dear friends,

Thank you for joining or rejoining a growing and vibrant organisation. We hope to create a good network of people in our churches to make all our visitors welcome.

  Churches appear in our printed brochure in full colour. They also have their own page on the website, where details and pictures appear. Churches may also advertise by sending news and events and extra pictures , for posting on their page and/or in the News section of the website. 

Our latest brochure was  published this spring with details of all our members' churches, including nine churches that have joined us this time.

However we are encouraging even more churches to join in with us and, therefore, we are already planning a new brochure to be published in 2019.

We would welcome any new members for 2018 - 2019 at a price of £60 (£30 per year).  They would have a web page straightaway, thus getting the rest of 2017 for free.  

Membership - Every Church in the County, especially those that are aware of visitors and tourists in their buildings, is encouraged to become a member. The cost is less than 60p a week so for two years, £60 per church. 

 Browse the latest brochure so you know what you might be missing. 

A total of 11,165 actual direct tourism jobs are supported by the existence of the £501 million tourism spend in Shropshire. This spend supports a further 3,602 indirect and induced non-tourism jobs, therefore, making approximately 14,767 jobs supported by the tourism spend in Shropshire.  Our churches are a vital part of this industry, the second largest in the county.

You have already found our website which is being improved all the time. Membership ensures your parish entry on this website.

Training and information days are being planned to help parishes with ideas for welcoming visitors.

An occasional Newsletter is sent to members.
