New Facebook page to showcase Anglican Communion life, ministry

Social media posts about life and ministry of the Anglican/Episcopal world are being shared on a new Facebook page facebook.com/TheAnglicanCommunion

While AnglicanNews.org and its Facebook page has been sharing newsfrom around the Anglican Communion for the past few years, other non-news posts have been confined to individual accounts unless intentionally shared.

The new Facebook page aims to gather the best posts from Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and elsewhere into one place and – in conjunction with the Twitter account @acoffice – to give visitors and followers a birds-eye view of Communion activity.

“We have volunteers from Africa, Asia, Oceania, North and Latin Americe, and Europe who will be posting and reposting anything they think will interest Anglicans and Episcopalians around the globe,” said Jan Butter, Director for Communication at the Anglican Communion Office.

“There are now so many Anglican Communion members, Churches and initatives sharing on these digital platforms that we thought it would make sense to create one place where at least the highlights could appear.”

Mr Butter added that he has encouraged the volunteers to post in their own languages where possible to reflect the global nature of the Communion’s faith tradition.

The Anglican Communion Facebook page joins AnglicanNews.org, the@acoffice Twitter account, the Anglican Communion News Service Facebook page and the Anglican Communion website, and theAnglican Communion Office’s issuu.com account as yet another digital channel providing news, information and resources to members of the Anglican/Episcopal community worldwide.
