Something special happens when the Church unites
We’re so excited you're planning to bring your Church to Awaken 2023! This page is full of ideas and resources to help get your Church engaged in the event.
Hosting an Awaken Sunday is a simple and effective way to talk to your Church about the event, we recommend taking five minutes out in your service for the pastor to personally share the importance of gathering and some information about Awaken, you can also share stories or interview members of the congregation with a testimony from a previous event.
Some tips for a great Awaken Sunday…
- Make it special - The opportunity to gather in large numbers as followers of Jesus is something we get excited about, making your Awaken Sunday that little bit different is a great way to visually get the Church excited, why not hang some bunting or put up a tent at the back for kids to play in?
- Keep it clear - We recommend you just share the key information and direct Church members to our website for more information
- Media matters - Why not use our media pack slides in the background during your service? Or even better use some of your own photos or videos from previous events!
- Experience excites - Notices are great, but stories are better! Try to keep your Awaken Sunday about past experiences and a taste of what people can look forward to at this event.
Small Group Notes
Ground Level have put together some small group notes for you to use and these can be done over one session or split in to two.
We think a great small group should be fun and engaging so we’ve included some ideas to break the ice and have a balance of content, social time and prayer.
