The Communications Commission oversees the dissemination of news and information related to St. David’s and its ministries, events, and parish life. The goal is to provide effective communications both internally, within the St. David’s community, and externally within Radnor, surrounding communities, Philadelphia, and the Diocese, to help advance the church’s mission to know God in Jesus Christ and make Christ known to others. The overall “umbrella” message conveyed is St. David’s is a welcoming parish and that ALL are invited to share in the community.
The commission oversees ongoing Facebook and Instagram posts that promote upcoming events and services at St. David’s and enables sharing of photos of parishioners at work in meetings or enjoying fellowship activities.
Share St. David’s posts and tag St. David’s when you’re posting photos of you and your family at church events!
Communications plans and contacts are shared across ministries (St. David’s Fair, The Gift Shop, The Art Gallery, St. David’s Episcopal Day School, and others) to ensure that there is a coordinated flow of external publicity sent out from St. David’s to the local media.
A proactive calendar approach plan has been developed to increase coverage of St. David’s news, upcoming events, milestone celebrations, and feature articles in local newspapers, magazines, and electronic media outlets such as PATCH and Main Line Neighbors and local TV stations.
The commission handles scheduling of “One Minute Ministry” talks during the announcements of the 9:15am worship service. As needed, the commission supports the St. David’s staff with their handling of parish newsletters, publications, brochures, postcards, and advertisements.
There are so many wonderful ministries here at St. David’s, and all documented photos and short videos will be used in:
- Social Media
- St. David’s website
- Internal and external printed publication and promotional materials
A system has been established to make it easy for ministries and parishioners to share photos and video clips with the staff (horizontal format please). All are encouraged to help build the photo library to document St. David’s activities and preserve them for the future!
The commission provides input for the St. David’s website and plans to continue improvements by:
- Adding more photos and video content
- Easy volunteer registration
- Live streaming important events
- Easy access to sermons, documents, and photos
- Access to our church directory and parishioners personal financial statements
