New Chapter as Life and Work Goes Digital

Friday April 21 2017

A new chapter opens today in the history of Life and Work, the 138-year-old magazine of the Church of Scotland.

For the magazine is now available for the first time to digital subscribers, bringing it to a new global online audience.

The digital title, compatible across all devices, has been trialled since January with ministers and parish magazine editors, who previously received print copies, now receiving an online digital copy edition to read instead. Following positive feedback, the title has now been launched for sale to consumers around the world via the magazine’s website and distributed via online magazine store Pocketmags. From May 2017 It will also be available to download from the Apple App Store and Google Play.

Editor Lynne McNeil said: “This heralds the start of a new age for Life and Work and will allow the exciting and diverse content of the magazine to be enjoyed by a wider audience, not simply within Scotland and local congregations, but around the world.”

The move to digital followed a review of the business functions of the magazine which reported to the Church’s annual business meeting, the General Assembly, in 2015 and recommended that a digital edition of the magazine be established.

Subscription options (including the purchase of a single copy) for the new digital Life and Work are available here.
