We’ve made a few changes to our Facebook pages over the past couple of weeks to address a couple of issues people have been having with how our notices and updates get distributed. As our parish has come together from three separate church communities with their own identity we have always kept separate social media pages for each, but as a lot of our notices are useful to all three churches we’ve distributed our updates to all three.

For the increasing numbers of church members who have ‘liked’ more than one of the parish pages that has resulted in a lot of duplication of notices.

What we have done now is to set up a separate Parish of Finchampstead and California page and convert each of the individual church pages to location pages. Facebook limitations mean that we have had to rename the existing pages, so they are now Parish of Finchampstead and California (St James), Parish of Finchampstead and California (St Mary and St John), and Parish of Finchampstead and California (St Eligius).

I future all the notices will be posted to the parish page, and will also appear on each location page as parish notices – what this should mean is that whatever combination of pages you have liked, you should only see the notices once in your news feed rather than having duplicates from the different churches.

You don’t need to do anything, but if you can ‘like’ our new Parish Page that would be much appreciated. We also have reviews enabled on the location pages, so if you’ve had a great experience at one of our churches, please do give us a good review.
