In 2019, we are looking forwarding to developing and offering a suite of training sessions and resources to support parishes with their communication. Look out for dates to be advertised soon.

Why not invite us to one of your deanery synods, or PCC meetings to talk about Communications with you?

Social Media Training:

We have welcomed the National Church Digital team on a number of occasions to share their insights into how churches can use social media more effectively.

These are practical days covering topics such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, A Church Near You, as well as guidance on how to deal with negativity online and safegaurding.

Our next session is on Friday 5 April, 2019 in the Diocesan Office. Details and booking here
