@CofEPortsmouth magazine

Our quarterly magazine @CofEPortsmouth goes out to 8,000 readers in churches and schools schools across south-east Hampshire and the Isle of Wight. The four editions each year come out in March, June, September and December.

It is designed to give churchgoers and non-churchgoers an insight into life in our parishes and church schools, combining longer features with stories about people and columns written by the bishop and others on significant issues. Topical news stories and forthcoming events can be found more easily on our website.
