Our communications team provides support to parishes and schools in the diocese, producing informative and inspirational content across a wide range of digital and print channels. 

We aim to create engaging, interesting and informative digital content, so we work closely with local and national media contacts, sharing interesting news stories from across the diocese. We also respond to requests, suggestions and enquiries. If you have a story you'd like to share, please get in touch.

We support the delivery of the diocesan vision to become a Church for a Different World, working with senior clergy and diocesan officers to deliver campaigns, initiatives and resources to support mission and ministry which encourage people to know, love and follow Jesus.

We manage our social media platforms, sharing news and events, and celebrating the good work of our churches and schools. 

We offer training and support for all aspects of communications. We also offer professional support and advice during times of crisis and particular media interest.

If you'd like to keep up-to-date with all that's happening across the diocese, why not sign up to our weekly e-news mailing list? Sign me up
