Good and Bad Communication

  • Goos communication makes us feel engaged, important and builds community.
  • All church members should be made to feel engaged through our communication.
  • It helps make people feel like part of our church community – it brings people to the centre of things.
  • You also want people outside the church to easily understand who we are and be eager to learn more.
  • Communication is the responsibility of the church leader.
