SUNDAY 4th NOVEMBER 2018
Join with churches and Christians
across the UK in praying for the media
Love it or hate it, media plays a vital role in our lives. At its best, media gives a voice to the voiceless, holds the powerful to account, and highlights unjust practices while entertaining us and keeping us informed.
As Christians, we affirm and support the media’s vital role in our society. We promote the highest standards in the media, and give our backing to the vast majority of people working in media as they strive for integrity and truth.
From national newspapers to local radio, from websites to specialist publications, from TV networks to blogs, all have a valuable role to play. A thriving global and national media matters to all of us. We want to know about our world, its celebrations, its problems and its joys, and we need a thriving media to help us engage with it.
What We Are Praying For
For honest, reliable and accurate journalism and programming. In a world where there are claims, counter-claims and disagreements, we need people of integrity who are committed to truth and fairness
For Christians working in traditional and non-traditional media alike, who care deeply about what is going wrong in society, that they can make content that shines a light on what’s going on.
For leadership in newsrooms, production companies and all media workplaces, for people who can change the work culture within the media, and for Christians in all positions to help influence change, to stop the exploitation of younger and particularly female staff.
For Christians in media to become more influential, and for effective discipleship of young people
Who We Are
