Here’s a new and innovative way of going about naming your church — ask your whole country to help. And give them a Wii if they’re right.
[Insert name here] church of Australia took that route. They held a competition, which has since closed, in which anyone from Australia could submit as many ideas as they would like to name their church. A simple site allowed anyone to submit a church name and tagline, and the church is now deciding among the submissions for a winner.
You can sign up to find out more about the church — details of the winners, info about the community and ongoing updates about the community. Seems like a genius way to draw a community to your new church. Keep your eyes peeled for the winning entry, and best of luck to the church to be named later!
Update: A winner has been named! CitySoul is the new name of the church. Read on for the full emailed press release.
You’re receiving this email because you asked us to let you know who won our amazing NameaChurch competition… We had hundreds of entries from around the country, ranging from the interesting to the crazy, the hilarious to the insightful.
However, there can be only one winner, and we are pleased to officially announce that the name of our new church is (drumroll, please…)
This name was submitted by Fuzz Kitto, a man who knows a thing or two about crazy names himself!
Fuzz, however, has generously decided to donate the prize, a Wii, to a worthy youth program in the bush. So, in consultation with SMG (South Australia’s schools chaplaincy provider), we’ve decided the worthy winner of the Wii is therefore going to be Joy Marks, the CPS worker at Mannum Community College, to be used in their Youth Centre, the Convertible Cafe.
We’d like to thank the hundreds of people who entered and if you’re interested in finding out more about us and haven’t signed up for our regular updates, please reply email to this address.
