Contributing to Life and Work


Addresses (unless otherwise stated)



Features and ideas should be submitted to the Editor, Lynne McNeil, at lrobertson@lifeandwork.org

Articles submitted should ideally be either around 600 words or 1200 words and have a theme which will appeal to a Christian readership. Every article submitted is read and carefully considered by the Editor.

Letters to the Editor

Letters should be no more than 350 words and must be accompanied by the writer’s name, address and telephone number, even if you are requesting that your details are withheld. Such requests will only be considered in exceptional circumstances. Letters may be edited for space and legal reasons.

Parish News

Parish news is for items of news submitted by single churches. We get more than we can use, but you can improve your chances of being included by:

The Big Picture

The Big Picture is our monthly gallery of readers’ photos. Please submit digital pictures only, accompanied by details of where and when the image was taken, with full name, address and contact telephone number of the person who took the photograph.

Images should have a minimum size of 300x210mm at 300dpi. (If that’s over-technical, please just send the full-size image as it comes off the camera).

Photographs may be reproduced in print or online by Life and Work unless the photographer requests otherwise.

The Big Question

Every month we publish a range of views on a topical question. If you would like to be considered please send us your details and interests.


Details of newly-ordained and admitted Elders, and recipients of long service certificates, can be addressed to mgrimley@lifeandwork.org

The Ministries register, which records ordinations, inductions, deaths and retirement of Ministers, Ordained Local Ministers, Deacons and Readers, is compiled by the Faith Nurture Forum.
