Come along to BAFTA in London this autumn for a stimulating and enjoyable day with friends.


Booking is open for a day of encouragement, challenge, and inspiration - plus plenty of time for networking. Speakers confirmed at the moment are Rob Hutton (political correspondent for Bloomerg and author of "Romps, Tots and Boffins – the strange language of news”. ) and Isabel Hardman (assistant editor of The Spectator and  Telegraph columnist)

Early bird booking is available at the moment via our EventBrite page - just £70 for the full day (8.30am - 3.30pm) including breakfast, lunch and refreshments. The Church and Media Network AGM follows next door at 4pm, and then for those going to the Jerusalem Awards it’s a bite to eat and back to BAFTA for 6.30pm. Phew!


The Church and Media Network

Our latest ‘signing’ for the Church and Media conference next month is the Revd Richard Coles. The well-known Radio 4 presenter and ordained minister will be talking about his varied career, which began as one half of the 80s pop duo The Communards (alongside Jimmy Somerville). Following his conversion to Christianity, it took him into parish ministry, first in Lincolnshire and now in Finedon, Northamptonshire.  He has been a broadcaster for many years, presenting The Mix on Radio 5 Live (for which he was nominated for a Sony Award), being part of the team at Radio 3’s The Verb  before becoming the regular presenter of Radio 4’s Saturday Live.  He’ll be talking about the journey that led him to faith, some of the challenges in the relationships he’s faced, and what it’s been like being a Christian working in the media.

Book in here, where there are also more details of the whole day, including contributions from the BBC's new Religious Affairs correspondent, Caroline Wyatt and the Gogglebox Vicar, Kate Bottley.

Our early booking rate is still available at the moment. I'm looking forward to meeting many of you there.
