Bishop urges more communication

The Rt Rev Nick Baines is promising to build a diocese based on dialogue with churchgoing Christians.

"It's not about the church doing things and hoping the world is looking in through the window, it's about the church looking out and seeing what the world needs," Rt Revd Baines told The Telegraph & Argus.

"And the way the world is now means that people get information and have debates in far more complicated than ever before.

"It's no longer the case that one writes an article for a newspaper and that's it - there are so many platforms for information and communication that we need to be able to use all of them in as many ways as we can."

Bishop Nick is also urging his clergy to use the media better.

He added: "Some people are still frightened of speaking to the media. but as long as we accept that yes, we may sometimes make mistakes, then we can do it without worries.

"I'd say - get stuck in and do it and don't be afraid."

A Monthly Gift Of $11 Makes A World Of Difference

In a world of fake news there’s never been a greater need for quality Christian journalism. Premier’s mission is to provide the Church with the most up to date and relevant news, told from a Christian perspective. But we can’t do it without you.

Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the USA is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.

For a monthly gift of $11 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.

Your monthly support will make a world of difference. Thank you.
