Communications and Press Office

The Communications team aims to share good news about the work that the Church of England in Devon is doing, tell the stories that need to be told and provide advice and support for clergy and parishes in dealing with local and national media.

We run the diocese website and social media channels, produce a monthly magazine, an e-newsletter Roots, compile a monthly prayer diary and publish an annual calendar.

We can provide media training, including social media and broadcast training for your church. The national Church of England Media Centre also has loads of great advice for making the most of your church communications:

The Church of England Devon Digital magazine is published each month and is found on the website in lots of different formats so that it can be inserted in to your own parish magazines or church news sheets.
