The Communications Group oversees our internal church communications systems, and also our external communications with the community. The key areas of responsibility are:
Church members with professional communications skills, or just an interest in communications, are welcome to join the Communications Group, and help with its work. Please speak to the vicar.
This publication was, for many years, a monthly Parish Magazine. Owing to the increase in electronic publication, the use of our website, and the weekly members' news sheet, demand for a traditional monthly Parish Magazine has largely fallen away. So the final 'monthly' magazine was published in March 2011, and "St Gabriel's Trumpet" has been re-born as a periodic magazine for church members and friends. The submission of material for publication is welcomed.
The magazine can be bought in church, or ordered for postal delivery, or sent electronically as a PDF e-book. Former church members, and other supporters, may subscribe to the magazine by post for a small subscription, or electronically free of charge. Please contact us to request this service.
An internet presence is an essential element of life today. Any institution without a website places itself at a severe disadvantage, as the internet is the primary source of information and recreation, not just for a generation, but for several generations. Our church website therefore intends itself to be both a useful resource for church members (where they may locate contact details, read the church calendar, and discover news) and also a tool of outreach through which potential 'live visitors' to our church may first be 'virtual visitors', learning a little about us through our web presence. We do always encourage those of our electronic visitors who are able to do so, to make a real visit as well. We love the internet, but we also beleive in real relationships - so we like to meet people in the flesh, as well as via the world wide web.
