Helping parishes with social media

Social media offers a wide range of opportunities for people to connect creatively and positively with others and share stories about Church life and the Christian faith as a whole.

At the same time, the nature of social media means that it is important to think about how we can communicate in this way and to manage the risks which can arise.  Our guidance is provided to help members of the Church to use social media well, whether in organising an online service or ministry, or in everyday life.

On our social media resources page, you will find guides and checklists for:

– using social media (and other online media) responsibly
– setting objectives for and organising parish social media
– video–conferencing and photography
– live–streaming and recording

We hope that this will be helpful for you and your parish.  The link to the page, for easy reference and sharing with others, is www.ireland.anglican.org/socialmedia
