MISSION
BACK TO CHURCH SUNDAY
Back to Church Sunday was observed in Anglican and Salvation Army churches across Australialast Sunday. Here in Darlington-Bellevue, feedback included:
‘I’ve been meaning to come back for ages. It wasn’t until I was asked that I got my act together’ 
 
‘I’m really interested in this thing about refugees. I know some other people who are too’ 
 
‘I’ll be back from time to time. I like getting the
em
ail each week and reading the sermons’ 
 
The ‘success’ of BTCS is not in how many people show up on the day, but in how many invitations
are offered and conversations held about our faith and our church.
