    "I found this inspirational and I would like to think that all of our churches would strive to become more 'Invitational'. I feel if this was to be concentrated on then other issues would, maybe, disappear!! Or at least become less important.”

    "Thank you once again for your presentation today. It was arguably one of the most enlightening presentations I have enjoyed in the last number of years."

    "Thanks to you I was able to teach my lovely congregation that it was OK if folks said no. I think this and the cards gave them confidence to ask. This Sunday we held Harvest and I still can’t quite believe that over double our usual numbers came rising from around the usual 50 to 109."

    "I thoroughly enjoyed your presentation last night. It was informative, inspiring, and encouraging with good humour to reinforce your points. Your insights into the “church” human psyche and faith as the thin edge are spot on! I feel much braver about making the invitation… honestly to think that one would fear rejection seems ridiculous but the mind has a funny way of working!"
