Do you use social media for your church?
If you've thought about using Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to get your message, mission and events out to a wider audience but aren't really sure how to get started, then this is an ideal workshop for you.
This workshop is for beginners. In it, we'll look at setting up your accounts and pages, how to use them, how (and what) to post and we'll look at ideas and best practice.
What you will need:
- Wi-Fi-enabled laptop or tablet (don't forget the power lead!)
- Smartphone (optional)
- Notepad and pen
- Packed lunch (tea and coffee will be provided)
It would also be useful for you to bring the login details for your church's email address (if you're going to use it to run your social media accounts from).
From February 2019, we'll be sending out a regular email with social media hints, tips and ideas to churches and church officers who subscribe.
Communications have a high priority in the Diocese of Derby.
We recognize that the context in which the Church is called to communicate the Gospel is fast changing. The communication revolution has affected all of our lives to a greater or lesser extent.
We seek to build relationships with the media and other partners in working within all communities through Derbyshire advocating prayer and worship, teaching and nurture, as well as care and service. The emphasis is on being proactive rather than reactive.
We issue media releases, produce internal communications, keep the website up to date and advise the bishops, senior team and parishes as to good practice when it comes to communications.
Please do get in touch and let us know what is happening in your area of the Diocese.
