What an amazing word from our elder Peter on Sunday about casting your net! The easiest way to be effective in evangelism is to simply invite someone to church. But this is 2014, and the first thing anyone will do once they’ve been invited is search us out online to see if we’re any good. So, we need 5 minutes of your time to write a quick review of the church to help potential visitors find us and reassure them that we’re not weird!
Pastor Chip has even promised a prize to the best review. We have no idea what it’ll be, but if you’re lucky it wont be fish-related!
There are 3 places we need reviews. Please just choose one and review us there.
Just search ‘Harvest City Leicester’ and hit the ‘Write a review’ button in the results. Answer the couple of questions they throw up and you’re done.
Go here fill in the form. Easy!
We aren’t listed here yet, but you can still review us! Just put in as much info as you know and they’ll do the hard work connecting them all together.
If you aren’t sure what to write, just keep it short and sweet. A one line “we love this place!” is absolutely fine. If you want to write a bit more, then here is Google’s official advice:
Be informative and insightful: Be specific and relevant to the place you’re reviewing, and describe what other visitors are likely to experience. Highlight what makes the place special, and try to share something novel and new. From signature dishes to secret sale racks, reviews should reveal the unique experiences that places offer.
Keep it real: Be authentic. Review your own experience, and explain why you liked or disliked the place. Try to be as accurate as possible, and include both the positive and negative aspects of your visit.
Be respectful: Not every experience with a place is going to be perfect. Sometimes you’ll want to share negative feedback. Even if you’re frustrated, make sure your criticism is constructive. Business owners often use feedback to improve their offerings.
Reviews not general commentary: At times certain locations may become the subject of larger public debate or conversation due to recent news coverage or current events. While we respect and value your opinion, Local Reviews are not meant for social or political commentary. We think there are other forums that are more suited to those kinds of conversations, like blogs or social networks. Please write about your first-hand experience of the place and not general commentary on the place in relation to recent news.
Write with style: People will pay attention when you write thoughtful reviews. Keep them readable and avoid excessive capitalisation or punctuation. Use good grammar, check your spelling and avoid profanity. Choose the right length – a paragraph is great. Be creative and have fun!
Leave us a comment below as well with your name and where you reviewed us and we’ll put your name in a hat for the prize. This is a great way to get us noticed and help build God’s Kingdom. Thank you.
Harvest City Church is a church were God’s word is preached, taught and lived. When we were looking for a church these were the most important things on our list for us. We are truly blessed to be able to serve in a church that reaches out to those that don’t know God and invests in young people, children and families for the growth of the church and the glory of God!
I sometimes stop to think of what my life would be like at this time if God hadn’t had His way! HCC I love you guys :) So blessed to have such wonderful Pastors and leaders that make me feel loved. They care about each and everyone one of us! I can’t find the words to describe how loved you guys have made me feel! Such love is hard to find! Grateful to God for using you to have such a great impact on my life! I count myself as blessed :)
