Poppy Invitation - Customisable Postcard
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.
Ten years on, Season of Invitation is entering a new season, moving from one invitational service to five. This is an invitation for a Remembrance service.
As an integral part of your regular Remembrance Sunday Service you may like to consider joining with other local churches and community groups for a public act of remembrance at a central outdoor location in your local community.
A community procession that starts from and ends in church (perhaps involving refreshments at the end) is a great way to invite people from your community into church.
Use a range of visual resources while you mark the Two Minute Silence.
You may want to consider interviewing a member from your church, for whom their faith in Jesus has provided great comfort following the loss of a loved one.
