There is no registration fee for churches participating in A Season of Invitation, however almost all churches choose to order an invitation pack, available from Traidcraft, via their website.  Packs cost £35 each +p&p and include 50 invitation cards for each event, 50 calendar cards, posters for each service and for the whole Season of Invitation and a training booklet.

 

“What if I don’t live in the UK?”

This is the first year for A Season of Invitation, so it is only running in the UK. However, Back to Church Sunday takes place all over the world and we partner with organisations in a number of countries including Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

If you live in one of these countries or wish to find out about BTCS where you are, please contact our BTCS Developer Michael Harvey on michael@unlockingthegrowth.com. You will not be able to order invitation packs through our UK website.

(If you have registered, but don’t believe you have received a link to the Traidcraft website, please contact us and we’ll resend it to you.) Please note you will need credit or debit card details to place an order. Once you have placed your order you will be sent a confirmation email/receipt by Traidcraft and your packs will be delivered directly to you within 14 days.
