The Anglican Alliance reached out across the Communion this week with a Facebook page for people to share views and expertise on development, relief and advocacy.
It aims to provide a space where Anglicans can share news and keep up with the Alliance’s activities.
Alliance Director Sally Keeble said, "We want to build a strong community around the Alliance, and hope that it will receive posts from the many very dedicated supporters of the Alliance who share the commitment to build a world free of poverty and injustice.
"Already it provides information and pictures of the work of the Anglicans, showing how by working together through the Alliance we can share the good news of what we are doing - part of the Anglican mission to the world."
You can find the Facebook page here: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Anglican-Alliance/218943218118012, and you can view the page even if you are not a member of Facebook. But if you’re not already signed up to Facebook, you will not be able to fully use the Alliance's page which is the work of Laura Payne, the new website manager for the Anglican Alliance.
"If you are already signed up to Facbook, then it would be really nice if you would show that you ‘like’ the page and its contents by clicking on the button at the top of your screen," said Sally. "This will ensure that our updates automatically appear on your newsfeed, making certain that you are always kept informed about our activities. Please also help us to promote the Anglican Alliance page throughout the Anglican Communion by inviting your friends and acquaintances to join our page as well.
"Finally, please enjoy using the page to swap news and ideas. You will see on the page that you can send in pictures of your work as well as information and news. Your brothers and sisters around the world will want to hear about what you are doing. We very much look forward to seeing these exchanges take place."
