A Church Near You - getting the most from your ACNY pages

Online workshop and surgery - Tue, 5 October 2021 - 14:00 – 15:30

A Church Near You is the Church of England’s website with information about ALL the churches in the Diocese (and in the country). It is used in many Church of England campaigns as a landing page for people to find out more about their local churches, particularly at Christmas and Easter.

But it does lots more besides and is a great way to let people know about your church and events. You can even use it as your church’s main website! In this session, we’ll look at how to make it work for you.
