Communications Training Opportunities @c_of_e

Church of England Communications Training

We’re keen to advertise opportunities to engage with social media, whether through workshops, courses, talks, and Social Media Surgeries. Let bex.lewis[@]durham.ac.uk know if you have events which would be of value to our readership. Below are some great value courses provided by the Church of England Communications Office.

Social Media for the Scared

Do you want to use social media to interact with your community, but have no idea how to do it? This half day course will give you the confidence and skills to get started. You’ll have the opportunity to discuss some of the fears you may have about using social media, and study examples of church or charity projects where these tools have been used successfully.

Social Media Strategies

Are you already using social media?
