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 – words, photos and video – and resources for parish life. We also offer training and we work with the media to tell our stories.

We are available to advise and support you on all media queries and communication, whether you have a local story that you would like to promote or need help in dealing with a journalist’s request.
We can assist you to manage any potential or current media issues. We can advise you most effectively if we are involved in the situation from an early stage, so please contact us as soon as possible. If you receive a call from a journalist that you do not feel comfortable dealing with, take the journalist’s contact details, the nature of their query and the deadline that they are writing to and get in touch with us so we can respond to them directly. If it’s out of hours, call the on-call mobile: 07811 174125
