Description

Community Visiting is where church members move out of their church buildings, and meet people in their own homes.

Rationale

It makes the community aware of the local Church. (Raises the profile).
It builds relationships on a one to one basis. (78% of people become Christians this way).
It gives opportunity to share the Christian faith in a non-confrontational way.
It helps fulfil the great commission given by Jesus - to “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation" (Mark16:15 NIV).
It builds the Church and helps us to grow as we are challenged by the questions 'what do we believe, and why?'.
It brings glory to God as we see Him at work, touching and changing people's lives.

Outcome

Obedience to God's call to 'Make the gospel known'.
It helps us to grow as Christians - in prayer, in worship, in witness and in knowing God's word.
The Church grows, as people come to know Christ as their Saviour and Lord.
It raises the profile of the local Church.
