What is The Good Book Hub?

The Good Book Hub is a bi-monthly 8-page publication aimed at providing useful information to church leaders and their congregations.

One side will feature jobs, apprenticeships and training opportunities of particular interest to church leaders and workers. This means you can target your advert to the people you really want to reach.

The other side will promote events and conferences and is designed for public display. This means that churches can display these listings for the whole church family to see, maximising your reach for events, conferences and other services of interest to the wider church.

Every listing will also appear on our website. So, regardless of when the next paper issue is due, your listing will be posted immediately, giving instant visibility to your advert.

What can you advertise?

We accept adverts for apprenticeships and jobs, training and courses, conferences and events, as well as ministry organisations. 

When can you advertise?

The Hub will be mailed 6 times a year to arrive at the beginning of January, March, May, July, September and November to a minimum of 4,000 evangelical pastors and other key people active in ministry. That's more people than The Briefing reached, plus the readership will be even higher as church members read The Good Book Hub on noticeboards. 

Can you design your own ad?

Yes – if you have a designer on your team, please let them loose and send us a print ready PDF. The only thing we ask is that you stick to the set sizes (please see the downloadable PDF on this page). Please stick to the set sizes so that each ad fits into our grid.  

Can we typeset your ad?

Yes – if you send us the text you want to include in your ad, we will do the rest. Please send us the text in a Word document. And please do be realistic about how many words can fit into an ad. As a general guide an eighth page ad should have no more than 110 words – even fewer if you want to include your logo and bullet points. Please see suggested word limits on the attached downloadable PDF. 

Can you include a logo?

We are happy for your logo to appear in your ad. If you would like us to typeset your ad, please send us a high resolution version of your logo along with the text. Eps files are ideal, or high res JPEGs – 240dpi minimum, 300 dpi preferred. Your logo needs to be about 300mm wide. Please don’t just cut and paste your logo into a word document.
