Knock, knock. Who's there? It's your local vicar. Derry church uses unusual approach in a bid to get people to come along to some of its events

From Derry (Ireland)-

A local church has taken an unusual approach to getting people to come along to some of its events.

People from St Canice’s Parish Church, right in the heart of Eglinton, have spent the past week knocking on every door in every street and offering a compendium of truly terrible ‘Knock Knock’ jokes.

It is an unusual way of highlighting a week of special outreach activities, according to the Rector of Faughanvale, Reverend Paul Hoey.

“We are running a week of special events entitled ‘Knock Knock!’ for everyone in the community and we reckoned that this might be a way of drawing people’s attention to it,” the Rector explained.
