Calling the churches to pray for the media in May
A range of resources and suggestions have been produced to help local churches to pray for the media. They include suggestions on how to engage with local journalists and broadcasters, and a prayer for media professionals.
The Church and Media Network is inviting local churches across the land to use these resources to pray for the media on Sunday 12th May 2013.
The call is a response to the rapidly-changing media environment and the challenges thrown up by the Leveson Inquiry and other media news over the past year. Roman Catholic churches already mark this day (the Sunday before Pentecost) as World Communications Day. Other denominations will be offered a special prayer to use in services, together with a set of simple ideas that will help churches to engage well with local and national media.
We’d love to see other partner organisations joining in, so please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org if your church or organisation would like to get involved.
The prayer, and resources to go with it, are available on the Church and Media Network website here.
