Coffee & Comms #1 – Social Media & Public Engagement

11am / 23 May 2023 / Online


Join us for our first ‘Coffee & Comms’ online gathering, as we welcome Rev. Robin Hanford to chat with us about using social media to engage with the local community and wider public.

‘Coffee & Comms’ is a new informal series of Zoom gatherings for spotlighting some of the interesting, creative and excellent communications work being  done by Unitarian congregations and sharing best practice with those who’d like to learn and up their game.

Our gatherings are hosted by Rev. Rory Castle Jones (Unitarian Communications Officer) and Lizzie Kingston-Harrison (Unitarian Congregational Connections Lead).

Our sessions are open to all – so make yourself a cuppa, settle down in front of your computer screen, and get ready to connect with great people and great work being done across our denomination and beyond.

Rev. Robin Hanford is minister of Hinckley Unitarians in Leicestershire. A newly-trained minister, Robin studied at Harris Manchester College Oxford and joined Hinckley in January 2022. Originally from Sussex, he was drawn to Unitarianism though its inclusive ethos – both in terms of diversity of belief and its LGBTQI+ inclusive and affirming nature. You can find Robin on Twitter here and a recent example of his use of social media in public engagement in this Metro article.
