I am writing to advise you of Ecclesiastical’s competition, where one Anglican church in your region will win a prize of £1,500 and also be in with a chance of winning a further £5,000!

There are 9 regions involved, which represent the 7 regional areas of the church of England, plus Scotland and Wales.  We have regionalised the Dioceses as per the attached document.

Our competition launched in June, and we’ve asked churches to send us just one photo and one sentence that shows how special and unique their church is. We hope to engage as many churches as possible from across the UK to show just how wonderful and irreplaceable each and every church and congregation is.

The competition will be judged in two stages, the first of which will be on a regional basis and involve regional judges, and the second will involve a public vote and national judging panel to choose the overall winner from each of the nine regional winners.

All the regional winners will be invited to send representatives from their church to a celebratory event in October 2020 where we will announce the overall winner as well as showcasing the wonderful photographs entered into the competition.
