Choose an interesting topic.

Arrange a date with the Minister or another church leader.

Invite half a dozen or a dozen friends round for morning coffee, afternoon tea, evening nibbles, or arrange to meet in a coffee shop, or a local hostelry, in order to discuss the chosen topic. Use suitable “Grill the Vicar” invitation cards.

On the day, the Minister gives a 10 minute introduction to the topic and then referees the discussion.


You can start by inviting all Christians – in time you will be confident to invite not-yet-Christian friends too. It all depends on the topic and what you want to achieve for the occasion.

Suggest your own topic, or start with something suitable from the list in Idea E19 below.GTV
