Dear Church Member

As you may have read in the September edition of the Presbyterian Herald, in 2014 the General Assembly commissioned a publications review to assess the viability of the magazines produced by PCI. This review has now been completed and was presented to the General Council in March 2016. Based on the review, the Council agreed that ReachOut magazine will cease with the December2016/January2017 edition and that some of its content will filter into an updated and revised Presbyterian Herald, launching in February 2017.

To assist with planning content for the revised Presbyterian Herald, we are seeking feedback from current readers and non-readers. For this purpose surveys were printed in the September Herald and October/November ReachOut magazines for readers to fill out and send back. We would encourage as many as possible to respond.

To assist people to respond, the survey is also available online and we would be grateful if you could circulate the link below to as many subscribers in your congregation as possible.
