TOURISM AND TOURISTS IN YOUR CHURCH
A brief exercise to get you thinking
Name of Church:
This is a list of ideas that can make a church welcoming to visitors and tourists. Some will be appropriate for your church, others will not. But if you are positive in your replies you can be sure you are welcoming visitors.
BUT can you be more welcoming? People visit our churches for a variety of reasons but often just because they are there. Can you improve the areas you marked negatively? Are you keen to welcome more visitors? Is your church a member of either the Herefordshire Churches Tourism Group or the Shropshire Churches Tourism Group, two organisations that can help you in this area? There is also a toolkit on this website which helps you work through a positive approach to welcoming visitors. Remember a happy visitor is usually a generous one.
