Resourcing the Church – My Favourite Communications/Marketing Sites

Resourcing the Church – My Favourite Communications/Marketing Sites

Here’s my thinking – I want to equip churches and charities the best way I can for their communications endeavours. I’m no fool – much as I try, this site will always have its limits as a church communications resource; what better reason, therefore, to provide links to some of the other sites around that I’ve found helpful.

My hope is that this is a living post, that gains more church communications resources, and hopefully more value over time. The list is separated in to two sections, one with content aimed at churches/ministries and another with a wider audience, but still broadly marketing-focused.

To avoid the cliché of a list with a bunch of names and not a lot more, I’m also providing a hyperlink to one piece of content in particular that has stood out to me as useful, insightful or even just amusing. I say one, we’ll see how disciplined I am. Resources are listed in no particular order.

Here we go!

      Not at all – thank you!

      We used the ideas from your photo booth post at Lansdowne Church last year, with brilliant results engagement-wise.
