2. Friends and Family Event
This event will encourage people that already come to your church to invite others to join them. Make this a casual and laid back event such as lunch or a movie night to make visitors feel welcome and accepted.
You can announce the event on social media, make announcements about the event during church to remind people to invite their friends and family, and you can even start a hashtag for the event.
3. Stream Online
Thanks to the world wide web you now have the option of streaming your church services online for people to join you around the world. The great thing about this is that you can reach people outside of your area and become internationally known.
Think about the 31 million people that moved in 2019. If they were looking for a church to attend in their new area, they would probably attend a virtual session online to see what it’s like to be part of your church community.
Keep in mind that streaming music online will require permits and if you do not want to go through the hassle of getting them you can simply stream the sermons without the music.
4. Put on Productions
Host either a musical production or a play and let people know about it. Advertise it online and encourage church members to invite their friends.
The holidays are a great opportunity to put on plays, but you can do them year-round with a little bit of creativity. Make sure to treat all visitors as if they were already church members to make them feel welcome. With a great experience, the chances of them returning are much higher.
