Gem Tourism

We have many opportunities to engage in a ministry to visitors and tourists, but sometimes we just need to find a way to improve that engagement.  Do you have a story to tell, whether it’s about your extraordinary building or a part your church has played in local history? People come to our churches for all sorts of reasons, and it’s vital that we offer a warm welcome to tourists and pilgrims. If you would like to improve the way you respond to visitors (no matter how big, or small, or whichever category you think you might fall into), the resources here should help you do that in a professional way. Many have been recommended or developed by the Herefordshire and Shropshire Tourism Groups and are packed with hints and tips on how to develop a ministry to visitors.
