Seventh-day Adventists will communicate hope by focusing on the quality of life that is complete in Jesus Christ.
The Communication and Media Department of the North England Conference aims to communicate the mission, vision and plans of the Seventh-day Adventist Church and enhance and develop its image in the perceptions of church members and community. We endeavor to maintain and develop a favourable image of the church, its mission, life, witness and related activities through the use of contemporary technologies. In essence the department functions as the centre for all internal and external regional news, press releases and publicity related to the Seventh-day Adventist church in the north of England. We oversee the development of all internal and external communication, specifically including hardcopy and electronic print and various forms of broadcasting information for radio, television and Internet.
One of the department’s main focuses is on training church members who are interested in communication or have been elected, within their churches, to serve as voluntary ‘Communication Leaders’. The training seeks to equip attendees with the skills to write news, take accompanying photos, publicise events, create and maintain relevant websites and ultimately lead communication between their church and our Communication Department at a regional level.
ResourcesThe Communication department is currently working on resources to assist local churches communicate effectively. These will include assisting local churches run their websites, sending news-releases to the local or church media, providing promotional items for use in exhibitions and community events as well as a variety of training materials and handouts.
