To see Christians working in, and with, the media flourish and become key influencers
To see churches engaging positively with the media
To see the life-affirming Gospel message of faith, hope and love increasingly reflected in the UK media
We support the highest standards in the media.
We want to give our backing to the vast majority of people working in the media as they strive for integrity and truth.
We believe that working in the media is an honourable profession.
We want to encourage Christians and other people of faith and goodwill to consider it as a calling. We want to support all those working in and with the media in our churches, including; church leaders and communications officers who help to portray and interpret the Church’s role in our society.
We want to see a thriving media
From national newspapers to community radio, from websites to specialist publications, from TV networks to blogs, all have a valuable role to play. Churches are parts of international and national networks – so a thriving global and national media matters to us. We want to know about our world, its celebrations, its problems and its joys, and we need a thriving media to help us engage with it.
We want to engage positively with the media
Churches are communities of believers rooted in local areas. So the local and regional media matter to us – they are vital parts of our communities, and help to hold those communities together.
In difficult economic and social times, we need a strong and courageous international, national and local media, working to the highest ethical standards.
We want to play our part in ensuring that we have a thriving media, committed to truth, and in affirming – and challenging – those who work within it.
