If you work in journalism, communications, content production or PR, and you’re interested in religion and ethics, our annual Church & Media Conference is an essential part of your year.

We recently hosted our 2018 conference at St Mary’s Bryanston Square, looking at themes of change and minority voices.

We had a packed and fascinating schedule for the day including topical debates, fascinating keynotes and practical, professional breakout sessions.
