'A Church Near You' Researcher

by Michael Ford last modified 14 May, 2018 12:40 PM

Seeking a volunteer Researcher to help parishes keep their listings up-to-date, on a website receiving three million visits a year. 4 hours per week.

A Church Near You

A Church Near You’ is a national website, updated locally. It is a portal to every Church of England parish and accompanying website – if the parish has set one up. Already receiving over three million unique visits a year, ‘A Church Near You’ is a sizeable Christian web presence and potential window of engagement.

We are seeking to recruit a part-time volunteer to carry out some research on the quality of the current entries for parishes in the Diocese of Salisbury, and to identify which don’t have an up-to-date entry.

Tasks are:

  • Parish by parish, checking the information in each of the sections of the listing is correct.
  • Checking that each parish entry has an assigned editor.
  • Checking if any parishes are missing.
  • Creating lists to pass to the ‘A Church Near You’ Champion*, to follow up.

The role will involve a commitment of 4 hours per week.

Please contact the Comms Team at Church House in Salisbury if you can help.
Michael or Gerry are available via  or 01722 438652.

* As well as this role, we are also seeking a volunteer Champion to contact, envision and support parishes as required. This work forms the evidence base for that support.
