At the end of the conference

There were approximately 200 people of every shape and size at the meeting which lasted from Monday morning until midday Wednesday. We’d come from every nook and cranny of England and Wales for the Churches’ Media Conference, held in the beautiful Derbyshire countryside, far from the noise and bustle of London .

Not everybody was Catholic and, in fact, we were in a very small minority, mainly because the organisation was started by Evangelical Christians and then spread out to involve the other Churches in a very serious attempt to network with other Christians involved in the media.

Approximately one quarter of those at the conference were religious broadcasters from the BBC, since this is their annual occasion when they themselves can meet each other and also key players in spreading the Word and making effective their own ministry around the UK.

At the end of a couple of extremely valuable, albeit packed and totally exhausting days, all I can say is that it is a wonderful experience to spend time with other faith groups, sharing in their insights and commitment to the one Lord. For everybody present, the priority was to search for ways to make God better known and loved.

What more could one ask?

Changing the subject, I have uploaded some new programmes on the website, so, pause and hear!

God bless,
Sr. Janet
