Getting back to church on Sundays

Several churches across the country have been encouraging people to come back to fellowship in Back to Church Sunday.

The event is important because in culturally diverse areas such as Tower Hamlets, Newham and Hackney, faith has a key place for people from different backgrounds.

The church does make a difference in the lives of these people, as I discovered when I wrote an article about the role of the church in East London.

Back to Sunday saw churches in these areas this weekend fling their doors wide open and welcome all kinds in.

But the numbers aren’t so important as the heart of the matter, which includes taking a close look at why these people left church in the first place, and secondly, why they should come back again.
