These notes provide advice on the setting up of a dedicated team of welcomers whose sole aim is to look out for visitors and newcomers. It provides four basic principles:
- Keep the team small and give it a specific responsibility
- Appoint one overall leaders and select members by ability and enthusiasm
- Keep the team low-profile and do not upstage your other welcomers
- Support the team by training, encouragement and prayer.
A number of specific tasks for the team are suggested. These include working on a weekly basis if possible, remembering names and faces, keeping good records, moving newcomers on to the next step, and championing the cause of welcome (and so working themselves out of a job!).
