Although the current Diocesan website has served us well for a number of years, it is clear that it is time for a refresh.

We hope you will be pleased to hear that we are now beginning work on the redesign of the Diocesan website. This is so we can have a website that is accessible and easy to navigate, has relevant content for our different audiences, and is really fit for purpose.

This work will be carried out by ChurchEdit as part of our membership of a consortium of 15 other dioceses and cathedrals called DC2.

Our membership of this consortium means we are receiving a complete redesign and ongoing development work at the fraction of the cost of undertaking this task independently.

To help us understand better who visits our website, the different ways it is used, and the functionality it would be helpful to have, we would love to hear your views.

The following questions should only take 5 to 10 minutes of your time but will be invaluable as we move forward with the redesign.

If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to email Jennifer Ross, Communications Manager and Bishop's Media Adviser on: jennifer.ross@rochester.anglican.org

Thank you for your participation.
