Communications and digital

Churches have lots of opportunities to communicate with their communities, particularly through digital and social media. We all have amazing stories to tell. The Communications Team can help you to share your parish stories on our social media, website and in our monthly email eNews
The Diocesan Communications Team is here to help you make the most of these opportunities through support and training.

Filming and photography in churches – consent and GDPR

Always seek permission for the Diocese to use the image in our communications. Obtaining consent for someone’s inclusion in a photograph or video is crucial. This involves explaining the purpose and potential use, safeguarding individuals’ rights and privacy. 

Avoid simply sourcing images via Google or online sources without proper authorisation.
