Parish communications toolkit View all categories

This toolkit has been compiled to enable and equip you to use communications media effectively and appropriately to serve the mission of your parish.

We hope you will consider the resources offered here as an invitation and not an instruction. It is important not only to ensure that your parish has the resources, staff or time to pursue a new approach, but also that whatever you decide to use connects the mission of your parish, the Diocese and the Church in a way which is authentic.

If at any time you need some further advice, or you need support to handle a media enquiry, do not hesitate to contact us. We also want to hear your news.

Media support

The media team can assist you to manage any potential or current media issues. They can advise you most effectively if they are involved in the situation from an early stage, so you should contact them as early as possible to make them aware of issues in your parish that may attract media interest in the future.

Data

It has been said that: ‘data is the new oil’. Whether you believe this or not, it’s a helpful way of livening a seemingly mundane element of parish administration. Data is undeniably a valuable resource when planning your communications strategy. This page gives information about effective data capture, storage and cleansing. 


Dealing with media enquiries

This guide has been drawn up to support parishes in dealings with the media.
