At the outset, please be very clear that follow-up visiting is different from home visiting
, an optional element in Designing the Programme. In follow-up visiting, our visitors are not there to request an increase in giving or even to talk about Giving in Grace. Their visit has two purposes. The first is to bring information that has been already been requested (e.g. Gift Aid declaration) to church members who are expecting a call. Second, the visit is about building personal relationships so that the response is much more than a financial transaction.
