Social Media Guidelines

These Guidelines are intended to help clergy and lay employees, office-bearers and representatives of the Scottish Episcopal Church use social media in the most effective and appropriate way and to help prevent its misuse.

Social media offers wide opportunity for groups and individuals to engage creatively and positively with others. It is a key way in which we can share stories about our congregations, the Church and the Christian faith as a whole.

At the same time, the nature of social media means it’s important to think about how to use it well and to manage the risks to which their use can give rise.
