Communication in the Diocese is overseen by the Communications Group.

Our main means of communication is this Website, where amongst other things you can find out about events that are happening, read the latest news, look up contact details for anyone with a role in the Diocese, discover what vacancies there are and download forms and other resources

We also have a  Forum accessed through the website to enable anyone to pass on information, take part in discussions and find out about things that are happening. To register for the Forum click here

The Communications Group is also responsible for producing the monthly Cycle of Prayer which helps churches to reflect on the Parishes, their concerns and needs. The Prayer Cycle also includes the dioceses of the Anglican Communion and petitions prayer for current issues in and around our world in areas such as the environment, poverty and injustice, political and religious persecution, etc.

You can also follow what is happening in the Diocese via Twitter and our Facebook Page. It is possible for parishes to share things on the Facebook page themselves.

Keith Blundy is our Communications Adviser and the person to contact if you would like advice on anything that is about communications, promotion, marketing and media & public relations.
