Together Lancashire - New Online Resource Strategy.

Together Lancashire, as a partner in CUF's Together Network has recently undergone a re-branding and as a result we have a marvellous new website and other online resources.

 

Do have a look at our website here

http://www.cuf.org.uk/together-lancashire

 

On the IN YOUR AREA   pages you can find out what we are doing though our local networks in Preston, Blackpool, Blackburn and Morecambe.

 

On the WHAT WE DO pages you can find out the themes and methods of our work.

 

 

We remain committed to providing an extensive information service, relevant to Christians and others who are involved in social action and community development across Lancashire. This will now be consolidated with regular updates on our

 

Together Lancashire Facebook Page.

 

You can access this as a web page here https://www.facebook.com/together.lancashire

 

Those of you who are regular facebook users will know that by "LIKE" -ing the page every post we make will appear in your personal facebook feed.  You can also make comments and submit guest postings.

 

IMPLICATIONS FOR OUR EXISTING ONLINE RESOURCES

 

Up to now Together Lancashire has used multiple channels for online communication and information sharing including Facebook Groups, blogs, external web sites, and google group email lists. From now on we will make much less use of them.

 

The Facebook Groups   

 

 

 

These will remain open and anyone who is a member can post messages in them, though we will only rarely use them, (posting as Greg Smith rather than as Together Lancashire) and only for sharing items which have strictly local relevance.  We may also continue to share and cross post some items into other facebook groups such as Morecambe Churches Forum, Blackpool Food Partnership etc.

 

Our Blogs

 

Up to now we have been regularly posting information items on three blogs

 

Together Lancashire in East Lancashire http://bunleytogetherlancashire.blogspot.co.uk/

 

Together Lancashire in Blackpool

http://togetherlancashireinblackpool.blogspot.co.uk/

 

PCAN BLOG 

http://prestonchristianactionnetwork.blogspot.co.uk/  

 

These blogs will no longer be used or updated but will remain online as an archive of our work.

 

Our fourth blog is

 

Together Lancashire - Stories and Reflections

http://tlstoriesandreflections.blogspot.co.uk/

 

This blog will also be frozen as it stands but we intend to continue to collect stories and reflections and publish them on the stories / blog pages of our main website.[G1] 

http://www.cuf.org.uk/Pages/News/Site/together-lancashire/Category/lancashire-blogs

 

We are always looking for new writers and new stories so

 

 

Our External Websites

 

Together Lancashire has been responsible for setting up and maintaining the websites for

 

Feeding Lancashire Together       http://feedinglancashiretogether.org.uk/  

 

Preston Christian Action Network   www.pcan.org.uk    or http://pcanprestonchristianactionnetwork.yolasite.com/

 

Homeless In Preston  www.homelessinpreston.org.uk    or

http://homelessinpreston.yolasite.com/

 

These three websites will continue to exist as long as yolasite offers a free web hosting service, but they will be minimally maintained and updated, and we do not guarantee to continue with the dedicated domain names when the registration expires.

What is Public Leadership?

The Evangelical Aliance's stuff on public leadership is at

 

Public leadership is about taking responsibility - knowing that we speak and act under the authority of God. It means caring about the place where God has put us, and stepping up, speaking out and engaging in public life. Taking our place as leaders in politics, the media and all parts of society.
