The nitty-gritty details
News articles are published on the New Spirit website and posted on our social media as soon as practicable after we receive them. There are no deadlines. Twice a month a News Update is produced and emailed to church communicators for them to forward on to their church members. It is also published online and on social media.
To be included in the News Update which is sent out on the Thursday of the first and third week of the month, content must be received before the first working day of the first and third week of the month. Content received after the deadline will be published online as soon as practicable and held over to the next issue to be emailed out.
Please note that if necessary we will edit any supplied text for style, length etc., though we do try to use a very light touch.
Please note that images/text supplied may also appear on the the diocesan website, Facebook page, website and photo galleries (Flickr).
While we try our utmost to include content in a timely manner, this cannot always be guaranteed. Finally, submission is not a guarantee of inclusion – though it is very unlikely that we will not use supplied material.
