Bollington Church News

Our Parish Magazine

We have for many years had a parish magazine printed for sale and distribution either monthly or (more recently) bi-monthly. It has been available to members of our congregation, but also to a wider public who do not attend St Oswald’s on a regular basis.

The COVID-19 emergency has forced us to reconsider how we we can handle the publication of “Bollington Church News” during a lock-down.

We have decided, as an experiment, to produce an online magazine, which can be read on your computer screen. It is in effect a conventional magazine layout that can be read without the need to print it out. All you need to do is download it*.

*Your normal browser may allow you to open and read the magazine, but if not you will need a pdf reader such as Adobe Acrobat Reader. This will work on both PC and Apple Mac, and is free to download and use. Other pdf readers are available. Acrobat download link here.

It probably won’t be so easy to read on the small screen of a mobile phone – this would require a fully electronic version, which is not envisaged for the time being in view of the work required to achieve it.

When you open the file, you can read it either with full page width, or with one page per screen. If you use a tablet, it will be best to view it in portrait mode so that a page will fit on a whole screen.

It is possible to print off the magazine if you wish, but please note that there are 40 pages! (It is also possible -if you really want to – to print it in booklet form, double sided, so that you can reassemble it into a conventional format).

Download your copy by clicking here.

(You may find it easier to read if you save the document to your computer and re-open it with a pdf reader.)

We will be printing a limited number of copies for those we know do not have easy access to a computer.

We would welcome feedback about this experimental online publication. In particular:

  • Would you like the online edition to continue?
  • Can we reduce the number of printed copies? (to save print costs – although for the time being we are incurring some postage charges)
  • Is there sufficient demand for a fully electronic edition, readable on any device?
  • Are there specific topics you would like us to cover?
  • Can YOU contribute any articles? (even if in note form that an editor can develop)
  • Can YOU help to produce the magazine?
