The Diocese of York has several ways of sharing news across our churches:

The Journal and The Briefing are issued on alternate Fridays.

The Journal is a selection of news stories, announcements and resources from the Diocese of York and is sent to all clergy, readers, churchwardens, PCC Secretaries and Treasurers; everyone else is welcome to sign up for it via this page.

The Briefing is a selection of coming events and resources from within the Diocese of York and from a variety of other sources; it is sent only to those who have signed up, which can be done via this page.

You can unsubscribe from The Journal or The Briefing at any time via the link at the foot of each issue.

See the Diocese of York's Data Privacy Notice on this page.

If you would like an event or news item shared in any of these channels please get in touch with the diocesan communications team via

Social media is an essential part of the way we communicate; make sure you follow the Diocese of York on Facebook and Twitter to keep up to speed on the latest news.

If you would like more information about setting up social media accounts for your church, just let us know and we'd be happy to help.
