What the Church and Media Network offers the Media
This is a time of massive change for the media. Broadcasting, online, print media, PR and advertising are converging. The lines between professional media and social, community and voluntary media are blurred. This is the context in which The Church and Media Network operates. We want to be flexible, energetic and inclusive in our approach.
Serving the media on behalf of the church.
We have unrivalled opportunities to engage with the media on behalf of the church. We offer pastoral care and support to people who work at every level in the industry. We offer support and advice to productions. We are also helping the media to evaluate their own engagement, practices and output.
Building bridges of understanding
The relationship between church and media has often been characterised by suspicion and misunderstanding. The Church and Media Network tries to embrace both communities, helping each to understand the other better. We aim to help the Christian community to think through its engagement with the developing digital environment, and to provide resources to help Christians think about their own media consumption. We are well placed to help the media engage positvely with churches and with Christian thought, and are looked to by media companies as they develop programmes of interest to the Christian community.
Working in the media
Many people working in the mainstream media have a Christian faith, and it's our desire to serve them. Christians make a major contribution to media in this country, and we encourage churches to support those in their congregations who work in, or want to work in the media. Our associated body theMediaNet acts as a support network.
