We encourage all those who call themselves members of Cornerstone Church Newcastle to be hospitable and to serve on hospitality under a facilitator who will help direct and guide people on Sunday mornings. The hospitality team will meet at 9:45 am and start with a short prayer. Responsibilities involve hosting and receiving new visitors at the front door, signposting people to the meeting space and aiming to try connect people within the church. We also try encourage members to be inviting new visitors outside of church where appropriate. Hospitality team formally finishes at 12:30 pm with a short debrief amongst the team and a feedback session with the facilitator.
Hospitality facilitators are required to demonstrate hospitality themselves, and we ask facilitators to commit to quarterly meetings to discuss the vision and future strategy for the ministry. We also ask facilitators to be responsible for church signage, locking of the front door and be able to organise and co-ordinate the team on the morning. Hospitality facilitators are expected to start at 9:30 in order to ensure the front door is unlocked and that signage is organised prior to 9:45 am.
