MEDIA REVIEWS
The cheerful cartoons dotted through this book should not detract from its importance. Paul Bond addresses one of the key questions facing an outward-looking Church: how can we make our buildings welcoming? (...) A church is still the place where enquirers are most likely to encounter other Christians, where they can experience worship, and where the architectural setting will liberate their minds from the domestic to the other-wordly. So, what can we do if our church doesn't actually fit this description? Paul Bond's lesson is crystal clear: learn from others. His book contains a wealth of ideas gleaned from the experiences of churches up and down the country. These are ideas that have worked." * Parish News *
"This is a very practical book. Practically every aspect of church management, apart from structural repair and maintenance, is convered." -- Brian Newson
'This book fulfils its aim of seeking ways to engage the gospel and life of the church with visitors who may not necessarily have any predisposition, or indeed inclination, to attend religious services. The suggestions and ideas will certainly inspire those who are keen to make their churches a memorable visitor attraction, and challenge those who already engage in visitor ministry to reflect upon their ideas and programmes.' * Rural Theology *
