HOW TO BECOME A CHRISTIAN

Around 13 per cent of teenagers said that they decided to become a Christian after a visit to a church or cathedral, according to new figures. The influence of a church building was more significant than attending a youth group, going to a wedding or speaking to other Christians about their faith. This is shown in a study, commissioned by the HOPE Revolution partnership, a Christian youth organisation, and carried out by ComRes, suggesting that  levels of Christianity were much higher among young people than thought previously. 13 % of 11 year-olds, rising to 21% of 18-year-olds, describe themselves as active followers of Jesus. The study suggests that new methods invested in by the Church, such as youth groups and courses such as Youth Alpha, are less effective than prayer or visiting a church building. It’s often embarrassing coming to a place where everyone else is familiar with what goes on - gyms, sports clubs, evening classes. Particularly when someone might come up and want to “convert” you. So, visiting a church when there’s no- one else around - just you - when you can think your own thoughts and understand your own feelings is important. Saint Leonard’s is one of those churches. We are open between 8 in the morning until 8 in the evening .. every single day of the year. “COME ON  IN  … … IT’S NOT OUR HOUSE .. IT’S GOD’S !!
