How to Write Letter

Church Welcome Letter

If you wish to welcome people looking for a safe place for spiritual life, fellowship and growth, write a church welcome letter, addressing all people with no difference to race, background, education etc. Such letter is usually written by the pastors to invite the people of the community and those who are seeking a path to their spiritual journey. Since, these letters serve as an introduction to the church and its followings, they need to be written very effectively. The focus of the letter is to describe the mission and vision of the church to the readers.


Tips to write an effective welcome letter:

  • This letter need not be personalized, unless it is addressed to a particular person, may it be a pastor or a staff member to welcome to the church. Generally, church welcome letter is written for the church site and meant for the visitors to this site.
  • This letter should focus on teaching the reader about the mission and vision of the church. It should also try to answer the questions that the visitors' may have in their mind about the church. Write a short history of the church, to give an insight to the new reader and in addition, give the church calendar informing about the service timings, speakers and events the church sponsors.
  • The letter should sound friendly, positive and should not discriminate amongst the readers based on race, beliefs, and background.
  • Unlike a sales letter, this should motivate the reader towards your church and its goals in addition, bond a relationship with the reader but not persuade one to buy a product or service.
  • Towards the conclusion, provide the contact information and offer assistance related to any matter of joy or sorrow.
  • To make the letter effective, you may include any quote from bible that relates to the core mission of the church or the letter.
