Changing Lives is all about reaching out and engaging with your local community. Good communications is essential to this and in helping parishes spread and express joy in the Gospel.
Parish magazines, news releases, weekly notice sheets, notice boards and parish websites are five key communications tools that churches are using to good effect.
We want to support you in this important element of your mission and outreach.
