Christian PR firm 33rpm is planning to launch a news distribution

service aimed at charities and other bodies seeking to gain publicity

among the UK’s churchgoers.



Agency boss Rob Marshall said the news service would serve existing

clients ‘and others who want to communicate with people in the pew’.



Marshall, former head of communications for the Diocese of London until

he set up his agency last November, said the service was aimed at

providing material for hundreds of copy-hungry parish and church

magazines across Britain.



He hopes to offer the Christian news service to subscribers for a modest

pounds 30 a year, and estimates suitable advertising and PR-derived

material could reach up to 200,000 well-heeled church goers six times a

year.



Meanwhile the agency aims to enhance its capacity to spread the good

news by hiring a full time PR account manager, and to open a second

office in Yorkshire to cover the North of England. The consultancy

already works as media adviser to the the Archbishop of York, Dr David

Hope.



The second staffer will work alongside Marshall and a number of regular

freelance editorial staff.
