Networked Parish – Socially distanced but still connected

There is a possibility that religious worship will be suspended through much of 2020.But we can keep the flame of faith burning online.

It can be hard to know how to get started with interactive communications. That's why we have published a simple guide for parishes on online communications.

More and more parishes are setting up social media or video-conferencing. If you feel yours lacks the skills or confidence to get started, help is at hand. We’re undertaking a survey of parishes to establish what support they need. And if you have some basic IT skills we invite you to volunteer a couple of hours of your time.

There are some additional safeguarding considerations for use of video-conferencing, particularly with children and vulnerable adults. Read the latest official guidance.
