Charity brings Christian communications into the 21st century

The Church Comms Improvement Project is offering churches across the country free website design, new posters and brand identities.

With many UK Churches stretched for resources and budget, the Christian Publishing and Outreach (CPO) initiative aims to improve media quality and engage more people with the gospel message.

CPO representative Jo Swinney told Premier: "Design and communication is not incidental it's absolutely core to a church's effectiveness and mission and outreach and its impact on its local community."

She added: "Some churches still don't even have a web presence. I think nowadays that's the first port of call for a newcomer, a quick Google search and they'll make a call as to whether it's somewhere they want to go based on the homepage."

The scheme which allows Christians to nominate a church in need of support, is working to remove some of the barriers that stand in the way of people encountering God's love.

Ms. Swinney said: "It's about not putting stumbling blocks in the way of people hearing a message that deserves the very best and the most brilliant and beautiful communication tools possible."

Grants can be won by churches who apply and could be include training in media, physical resources or website support between the value of £50-£1000.
