LIFE is about sharing our stories in new and different ways so people will know the transforming Gospel of Jesus Christ.

The Communications and Engagement department supports our vision by producing publications, providing content – word, photos and video and resources for parish life. We also offer training and we work with the media to tell our stories.

Share your stories

What’s going on in your area? We want to share more about the interesting, unusual and exciting things going on in your part of the Diocese.

Sermons and Readings

We are producing weekly sermons and Gospel Readings each week – available on the Tuesday of the week ready for the following Sunday. Each sermon or reading will be available as a video that you can share via your social media groups, or livestream through a Zoom session/service.
