The aim and mission of the Association for Church Editors is to help you to improve your magazine and to encourage the effective communication of the Christian message

Formed in 1999, the Association for Church Editors brings together editors, designers and other church members involved in the production of church magazines in all denominations throughout the United Kingdom and abroad

A group of local church magazine editors had come together to discuss ways and means of producing successful church magazines. The Association grew out of a proposal to organise a national church magazine competition, which has now become the ACE Awards Scheme.

Church magazines play an extremely important role in reaching out not only to existing congregations but also to people  who live in the community around  the church but who, for whatever reason, do not come to church.

To be successful in competing with so many other publications coming into people’s homes, the quality and content of church magazines have to be as good as we can possibly make them.

The ACE website is your portal to advice and resources designed to help you improve your church magazine... more>
