As church members we are all hosts and not guests.  Making visitors feel welcome is for all of us to do.  The most important person for any visitor is you.  Treat first time visitors as guests of God and not strangers.  A smile and a hand go a long way to making someone feel welcome and relaxed in a new environment.  Never let new people sit alone, go to them, sit with them.  Invite new people to take a welcome pack.  Tell them you are glad they have come.

You could also practice your invitational/relational skills by being a Door Steward or by becoming part of the Welcome Team.  

Mostly be yourself.  Practice making people feel special and welcome.  Consider yourself called.
