Whether you are visiting a new church for the first time on a Sunday or a special occasion such as a wedding or christening, or if you are simply entering a church for the first time, you can expect a church welcome by the vicar of the church as well as other church goers, especially those that visit on a regular basis and are a solid part of the church community.
If you are in the process of finding a new church and are visiting lots of different services, then you will probably need to prepare yourself for lots of different church welcomes and introductions from the church community.
Not all, but some churches can be quite forceful when it comes to committing to their church, as every church goer believes their church is of course the best one in the area. A church is open to the public and is place you can go to quietly pray, anonymously if you so desire, and you are not obligated to commit to anything. Most churches will be incredibly respectful of their visitors, and an ideal way to respond to a church welcome is to be very thankful of their effort, complimenting the service and / or the church and all in all, be very graceful. Church welcomes are there usually to make you feel welcome and at home, as it can be quite daunting entering a church on your own, especially if it is full of people that are familiar with each other.
Respond to their friendly welcome by asking questions about the church and the weekly services and get to know other patrons and the community. You can even use the time after church to speak with the vicar. Just remember to be open minded, respectful and appreciative of the welcome.
