Religion Media Centre

Religion Media Centre

Located in the United Kingdom, Religion Media Centre is an independent, impartial body helping journalists and other media professionals cover world religions and beliefs. We provide accurate, timely and relevant information to the media, enabling the public to be better informed. We aim to improve religious literacy among journalists, media professionals and the wider public.


Our online briefings through The Press Club on help journalists discover more about stories in the news, find new angles and helpful contacts.


Factsheets are written by academics, journalists and commentators to explain the context and background of current religion and belief stories. They include information on festivals, timelines of running stories and suggestions for experts and commentators.
