On Saturday 23rd April CVTA is holding an East Midlands seminar in Leicester entitled Open for What? The Ministry and Mission of Church Buildings
This will be of particular practical interest to churchwardens, clergy and others from all denominations and faith groups who are keen to open up their church buildings to visitors.
There will be presentations on communications, use of technology, improving your welcome, case studies from Leicester and a tour of Leicester City Centre including the Cathedral and Richard III’s tomb. You can download the CVTA Seminar Programme and CVTA Seminar Booking Form. For more information please contact Canon Philip Norwood firstname.lastname@example.org
The Churches Visitor and Tourism Association has long been the UK’s leading ecumenical body for promoting best practice in welcoming visitors to places of worship – whether they live almost next door to the church or hundreds of miles from it. We have especially been campaigning to make sure all Britain’s churches are open during daylight hours, a practice encouraged by their insurers as well as an obvious part of their mission.
