Welcome”. It’s such a common word, but quite difficult to always get right in practice.
It is a blessing on someone that they may feel at ease in a strange place. One such place where anyone can go and should feel welcomed is at church; it is part of the church’s life to welcome people into God’s presence. However we don’t always get it right. If you have not felt welcomed in church we can only apologise, ask for your forgiveness and encourage you to try again. Please know that everyone is always welcome in church.
Rev Jane Blatherwick, St John’s, Carlton.
