News from The Church and Media Network (of which I am a trustee):
What will you find at this year’s CHURCH AND MEDIA CONFERENCE?
Well, for a start there are some really significant names to lead our thinking. Distinguished journalist and broadcaster Roger Bolton will give a keynote “state of the industry” address and globe-trotting campaigner Tony Campolo will ask whether the media we’re making is damaging our culture.
Then there are plenary sessions looking at some big issues – like whether faith is being squeezed out of the public arena, how Muslims are portrayed in the media and whether local broadcasting has reached the end of the road or just the beginning.

As ever we’ve assembled a line-up of top speakers … like Caroline Diehl from the Media Trust,Andrew Copson of the British Humanist Association and the new chair of the Church and Media Network Elaine Storkey. And there’s a great deal more besides. If you take faith seriously and you care about the media it’s unmissable.
But probably the best reason to get to the Church and Media Conference is to network with friends and colleagues from across the industry.
The conference will take place from Monday 7th – Wednesday 9th June 2010 at the Hayes Conference Centre, Derbyshire. If you haven’t booked your place yet click here for more details about the conference and online booking. There are substantial discounts for early booking, so don’t delay.
Please would you help us get the word out by forwarding this email to anyone you know who may be interested in joining us.

Of course there will be plenty of time to network and relax. I’m delighted that award-winning comedian Jo Enright will be joining us for a Summer evening of fun.
