This allows you to write a news story or blog about the life of your church, and upcoming series your church is looking at or perhaps your upcoming services and events.
If we’re approaching Christmas, you could write a short description about the various events and services planned, who’s welcome and how to get involved.
To create a news story, click on ‘+’ button on the ‘News and notices’ tab on the left-hand side.
Ensure the ‘News story’ tab is selected at the top of the page, and then give the news story a headline. Make sure this is short – and sounds interesting! Then add a short description that tells people a little bit about what the story will contain.
The ‘News content’ box is where you write the full story. Try to keep this below 400 words.
You will then be required to select a time and date this story will go live (appear on your AChurchNearYou page). You must select a time and date. Then it’s time to select the tags that apply – this will help users to find your content.
When selecting an image to upload, make sure it is of a high quality and represents the story.
