After a significant absence, the Presbyterian Church in Ireland’s denominational magazine, the Presbyterian Herald, is back.
In any given year, the 10,000 Herald subscribers would receive eight monthly copies and two double editions, July and August and a Christmas/New Year edition. As Herald editor, Sarah Harding, explained, the magazine’s production team had to pause publication back in March, with the Easter edition, due to the pandemic, “but the Herald is back for 2021, and we will be publishing four bumper editions throughout this coming year,” she said.
“We recognise it’s been a very difficult time for everyone, I also appreciate that many of our readers may be feeling a little disconnected from their congregations, or indeed the wider Presbyterian family,” Sarah said.
“We hope, however, that through the Herald our readers in our congregations across Ireland might regain some of that connection – and the good news is that for 2021 the Herald will be free to everyone, so please can I encourage you to avail of this offer. I would also like to welcome any new readers to the magazine.”
Each congregation’s quota will be delivered to the Agent instead of the usual depot and each copy will also be individually wrapped.
Once the Herald is published PCI will be putting it online for free – both as a PDF copy and also as a digital copy which can be accessed at issuu.com/presbyterianireland.
The Spring edition of the Presbyterian Herald will be available in April. If you would like to start subscribing to the Herald please speak to Gladys Finlay.
