EKO MAGAZINE DEADLINE
ARRANGEMENTS: This is
to clarify the arrangements for editing and producing the EKO Magazine. The
system works well and most of the contributions are received during the week
prior to the deadline and are sent by e-mail; this is very helpful and the
editor would be grateful to anyone who can follow this procedure, the rule is
‘the earlier the better.’
The final editing and layout of the magazine cannot be
completed until the last item is received so in practice the Sunday deadline
means after the service. This allows time for the magazine to be
finalized and a master produced in time for printing to start early on Monday
(printing can take up to 7 hours).
The reason for the tight schedule is to avoid printing on
the Tuesday when the office is open and Wednesday does not allow time for repair
should a breakdown of the printing machine occur (Folding and collation takes
place at Thursday Coffee). Thanks to everyone for cooperation in the past. .
ELECTRONIC COPIES OF THE EKO MAGAZINE: Every now and again there are requests to
continue delivery of the EKO magazine to members who have moved away but who
still want to keep in touch with our church, its work and the congregation. These
members, their friends, or in some cases, the church, have borne the
cost of postage, which as we all know, has recently increased. Given
that more and more people have email addresses these days, we thought
we would offer to send the EKO out by e-mail where appropriate. If you would
like to receive an emailed copy of the EKO magazine, or would like a friend to
receive one, please contact Christine Bayfield at
Note: this service is
also available to members who are current members of the congregation and live
locally but who would prefer to receive the EKO by electronic mail.
A GREETING FROM THE
The EKO Magazine Publications
Committee would like to wish all our readers a ‘Happy New Year’ and all the
best throughout 2013.
We would also like to take this
opportunity to thank the team of dedicated volunteers who make it possible to
get the EKO out to you each month, the editing and printing team; the Thursday
Coffee team of assemblers and the monthly distributors who deliver your
magazine. Once again many thanks and very best wishes to all
Christine Bayfield, Publications convenor.
