Publicity

02 Jan 19

Publicising an event is always a challenge; to ensure the message reaches as many people as possible while trying to keep costs as low as possible. There are various different ways of communicating festivals and events; word of mouth is one of the best and is very effective but perhaps not reaching a wide audience. Posters and flyers are relatively cheap, but not always eye-catching in black and white and can take time to design and distribute. The signs on the road side can be effective if people are driving by. Adverts in local newspapers can become quite expensive for just a small slot. 

We have however in the past been lucky enough to have prominent articles in some of the local papers including photographs helping draw attention to the occasion. We are very grateful to the editors who do this for us.

In recent years social media has become an extremely effective method to promote any event widely and cheaply, we are grateful to Mark of Nuneaton Memories who has helped us with this side of things.

We are now preparing and looking forward to the events of 2019 with great anticipation. We hope to welcome visitors who see and hear about these and that they will come and see for themselves. We trust that visitors will be able to see that Ansley Church is working with the local community and trying to spread the Christmas message.

Personal Profile
Rev. John Langlands

 Rev. John Langanlds 

It is with great pleasure that I would like to welcome you to St Laurence.  Frances, my wife, and I have received a very warm welcome ourselves, so you will not be disappointed when you visit St Laurence.  I am also the Curate of the other churches in Ansley and Arley – St John’s, St Michael’s and St Wilfrid’s.

Being in a rural and farming area in the north part of Coventry Diocese is like coming home for us.  A number of years ago I pastored a church in rural Norfolk which was mainly surrounded by arable farms with some pigs and chickens.  The strong sense of community life was something very special.  This should be particularly valued in these days when many folk live such individual, separate and often lonely lives. 

We have just had hot off the press a visiting card which I hope reflects what our church stands for: ‘You will not walk alone.  Together we are with you on life’s journey’.  Over these next weeks, months and years, I hope we can get to know you better and that you will find Frances and myself not just ‘churchy’ people but friends as well, who enjoy life and plenty of laughter!

Rev John's January Jottings

Can anyone restore the lost year of 2020? That is a question you might be asking.  There are many who think that it is within our human power to restore everything, especially with the past year.  However, God can restore much more than we can imagine. Take for example the following, using each letter from the word ‘...
