It provides news and information about Modern Church and offers members an opportunity to communicate with each other in print.

We welcome articles, notices, poems, suggestions, comments and suitable accompanying graphics.

The articles we publish do not necessarily reflect a Modern Church perspective - in keeping  with our commitment to liberal theology we believe that different views should be heard.

Send material to the editor by 8th December, 8th March, 8th June or 8th September. Articles should not normally exceed 1,000 words.
We prefer email but will process typed or handwritten text.

Copies can be provided for distribution in churches and elsewhere - contact the Modern Church office for details.
