The Episcopal Church communication and style guide is now available here.  The guide has been expanded to provide social media best practices, blogging guidelines, email etiquette and tips for parish webmasters.

The easy-to-read and easy-to-reference document can be downloaded and/or printed.

“We’ve aggregated local expertise and experience from across the Church,” explained Anne Rudig, Episcopal Church Director of Communication.  “The one constant in communication is change. We hope the style guide can be helpful in navigating it.”

The style guide includes:

  • Use of Episcopal Church logo and shield
  • Typography
  • Episcopal Church Colors
  • Photos
  • Writing styles
  • “Must haves” for congregational websites
  • Social media best practices
  • Blog guidelines
  • Submission information for Episcopal News Service
