Church Communicator Network
The network of Church Communicators is aimed to help give the church a better profile in the media and improve communications between the churches and the diocese. They help promote church events and be on the look out for stories to place in the media through press releases. The aim is that as many parishes as possible will be able to find someone to take on this voluntary role. Even in a small way, it can have an impact. We have more than 30 Church Communicators around the diocese but we need many more to be effective.
