Back to Church Sunday: 17 September
Back to Church Sunday (BTCS) is the single largest local-church invitational initiative in the world. It is based on the simplest and shortest step in evangelism–we invite someone we already know to our church.  While the initial focus was to invite ‘back’ those who used to attend church, others who do not attend can also be invited, gently encouraged and warmly welcomed. Since 2011, GtC has been supporting and promoting this initiative. For 2017, the international BTCS date is 17 September, and the theme is ‘A Place to Belong.’ Please note that you can also choose another date that is more convenient or better suited for your parish. Regardless of when you decide to hold your BTCS, we have provided the following helpful resources to help you plan:
