A basic rule in planning a mission is…‘If we do something, God will do something; if we do nothing, nothing will happen’.
The most effective way to ensure that people come along to your outreach event is to personally invite them along. There are three things we can all do to help ensure that people come along to events that we have put so much effort into organising.
Once we’ve personally invited people, then use other means of communication to remind people about what is happening and when and where, so producing posters and invitations can help reinforce the personal invitation.
Make sure you promote your outreach events and Mission Weekends on your website homepage (if your church has a website).
On the build-up to your event and throughout the event itself, you should maximise the use of social media - for example, to profile events and engage with people to introduce them to Jesus.

The following resources were produced by the Parish Mission Support team to support parishes in their preparation for Crossroads in 2016. Whilst the date has passed, the principles are still relevant for planning any mission event.
