I am not sure what I think of Back to Church Sunday; at times it feels a little bit more like Backsliders Sunday, with rather negative vibes, and it can excuse us from working at reaching out to the local community throughout the year.

I like Rowans phrase ‘we have something significant in the bank’ and we need to make use of it.
