We have unveiled a new look for the diocesan website as we move its hosting to a new platform. This move comes following our membership of DC2, a group of around 20 dioceses pooling their resources to improve digital services.

The new platform is powered by Church Edit which supports many churches across our diocese and the rest of the UK. It incorporates a great many features including a link to A Church Near You which enables people to find their local church.

Stuart Haynes, Director of Communications and Assistant Diocesan Secretary said " moving our website onto this new platform is the first part of a longer project to build a web platform that really benefits parishes, schools, chaplaincies and worshipping communities across our diocese. Although we started planning this before the pandemic, the last year has shown a real need to improve our digital work. Being part of DC2 with this new website will really help us achieve that goal."

This first stage of the project has seen us move the content of our website onto this new platform. We have structured it in a logical way with 

  • About us - a section showing the details and workings of the Liverpool Diocesan Board of Finance, our visions and  governance

  • Rule of Life - a guide to the rule with reflections on how to pray, read, learn: tell, serve and give.

  • For parishes - our section designed to make it easier for parishes and officers.

  • For leaders - an area to support clergy, readers, local missional leaders and parish officers.

  • For schools - a place for governors and staff from our church schools.

  • News and events - including a place to sign up for our Weekly Bulletin

 

We have much to do and will be continuing to work on this, developing and improving different sections. Also through our membership of DC2 we will be able to improve what we do and benefit from investments in new technology.

Moving the content to a new site inevitably means we can find broken links and content missing. So if you can't see what you are looking for then email central.services@liverpool.anglican.org telling us exactly what the problem is and we will get it fixed.

Stuart Haynes said "I am really pleased with the look and feel of the website. We now have a great launching pad to develop our services for the benefit of all.
