Social media guidelines

Our guidelines seek to help all members of the Church to use social media in the best way and to help prevent its misuse; they seek to set good boundaries for social media and encourage people to use our platforms in a way that treats others as they would wish to be treated themselves.

You will also find templates and checklists for setting objectives for and organising parish social media, video–conferencing and photography, and live–streaming and recording.  Consent forms for children and vulnerable adults are available on our Safeguarding website:

If you have a query about our guidelines, please contact the Press Office as follows:
