Local Groups






We are looking at forming Local Groups. What about your area?

Did you know that the first church magazines were published in Derby over 150 year ago? So wouldn’t it be appropriate if we formed a new Local Group aimed at including the Dioceses of Derby, Southwell and Nottingham, Leicester and Lincoln?

It’ll take a while to get going but already there have been indications that enough members are interested for it to be worthwhile looking at the idea and taking it further.

I have had a useful meeting with Richard Ellis, the Director of Communications for Southwell and Nottingham. The told me that his colleagues elsewhere are likely to be interest and give the project support because they have all been tasked with supporting and help magazine editors in their area.

Of course we don’t to limit this idea to the Church of England. We would like it to be ecumenical and included Methodists, United Reform, Roman Catholic and other denominations so if you have friends in other denominations, please introduced then to the idea and we will be more than happy to talk to them and encourage them to come on board.

It is early days as yet but I would welcome any assistance and ideas to help get this project off the ground. But don’t let it rest in the East Midlands. Why not look at the idea of forming a Local Group in the area where you live. Please get in touch and I’ll do what I can to help you.

As this grows we can put each new Local Group to the Executive Committee and win their support.
