Two new Church of England parish publications go
Two new monthly publications, specifically designed for Church
of England parishes, have been posted online on the Church's website.
In Review and In Focus concentrate on the work of the national
Church. The front pages of both first editions feature news of the
Confirmation of Election of the new Archbishop of Canterbury,
Justin Welby, and the parliamentary launch of the national Lent
campaign, "Love Life Live Lent" by the Archbishop of York, Dr John
In Focus is a four-page A5 insert specifically designed to fit
the centre spread of parish magazines. It is offered in both colour
and black and white versions.
The larger In Review is a four-page tabloid newspaper in full
colour. Parishes are encouraged to print this off and post it on
church notice boards for congregations to read.
The Revd Arun Arora, Director of Communications for the
Archbishop's Council, says: "The National Church Institutions are
working on behalf of the parishes. That work is underpinned by
contributions from congregations. In Review and In Focus offer all
12,500 parishes an opportunity to read about the projects carried
out on their behalf by the national Church."
In Review and In Focus are offered as free PDF downloads on the
Church of England website. They will be available in the final full
week of each month, to support parish magazines with publication
dates on the first of the month. Alternatively church websites can
link to the files for parishioners to browse at home.
