We are delighted to welcome you to our church magazine editors’ forum.

We hope you enjoy your contact with other church editors – right round the world. Here you can discuss everything from how to get your minister to write his ‘letter’ on time, to how much to charge for advertising, from the best way to lay out your magazine, to the best way to distribute it. If you have expertise in one of these areas, there are thousands of people out there who might benefit!

Church magazine editors enjoy meeting each other. They certainly enjoy comparing ideas on how to produce a good magazine. In fact, whenever we have held a ‘training day’ where editors get to meet us and each other face to face, we have found it hard to get a word in edgeways!

In every gathering, there are some basic ground-rules for how to behave, and so before we go any further, here are ours.
