Neighbourhood Welcomers

” Love Your neighbour as yourself” 
is the second great commandment (Mark 12:31)

About the Scheme

In Ecclesall the six Churches have the opportunity of welcoming
their neighbour who has recently moved into the area
through the Welcoming Scheme.
We have produced a Welcome Leaflet with information about Ecclesall -
surgeries, dentists, chemists, Post Offices, Buses, etc -
as well as details of the churches and their services.

The Welcomer will call with the leaflet to welcome new neighbours
and to ask if there is anything else that the newcomer would like to know
e.g. wheelie or blue bin day, Brownie or Cub Packs, or whatever,
and will put their own name on the leaflet in case any further contact is wanted.
The idea is simply to be friendly and available if needed.

If you have recently moved into the area and have not received a leaflet
please contact one of the Conveners listed below.

How can I help?

We are usually looking for some more welcomers and all we ask is
that a welcomer who lives near-by calls once to show a friendly face.
This might mean making two or three separate calls a year.

So, if would you like to help meet the second great commandment -
by becoming a welcomer for one of the roads and blocks of apartments
in Ecclesall not yet covered, please contact our Convener.

Also, if you are aware that a newcomer has arrived in your neighbourhood,
please tell our church Convener who will then ensure a leaflet,
and a welcome is delivered.

Pray for the scheme that helps make Ecclesall a friendly place
for all who come to live here.

Please contact our Conveners for more information or to Volunteer.
