Voice for Good media training weekend 14-16 October

Voice for Good media training weekend 14-16 October

Do you feel a calling to speak up and be a voice for good in your community? Would you like to learn more about how you can put this calling into action?

Would you like to see your church and its projects featured in the local news? Do you want to read more articles and opinion pieces written by Christians?

Could you have something to say to the national media?

We want to equip Christian voices to speak on the airwaves, in the papers, and online. Whether it's in business, politics, or church life, there's a vital role for Christians in stepping out and speaking up.

We are putting on this special weekend in October to develop Christian voices who can speak up in the media. We want to prepare Christians who are leading in a wide variety of settings to have the confidence and skills to have an impact in public discourse.

If you would like to increase your media engagement skills through learning, practice and discussion, join us at the stunning Oast Houses in East Sussex on 14-16 October. The subsidised price of £110 includes all meals and accommodation (in shared rooms).

Along with the Alliance team, including directors of advocacy and communication, Dave Landrum and Chine McDonald, we'll be hearing from former Radio 4 journalist, Christopher Landau; director of communications for HOPE, Catherine Butcher; and Neill Harvey-Smith, former head of media for the Church of England

Book in now to become a voice for good

The weekend will include:

  • How to become a voice for good? How you can create opportunities to be a voice for good.
  • Being a voice for good. How to use the opportunities to make an impact in public debate
