“Non-official” Christ Church accounts
Over the years many social media accounts with some Christ Church association have been created. Primarily these have been set up by Junior Members to communicate or promote extra-curricular activities. None of these accounts is considered by Christ Church to be ‘official’, or to reflect the views of Governing Body or Chapter. For any future, or existing ‘live’ accounts, where the owners/operators can be identified and communicated with, the following phrase should be added to the account bio or description: “This account is not owned, endorsed or operated by Christ Church, its Governing Body or Chapter – all views expressed are our own”.
Additionally, none of these accounts should use or display the Christ Church logo or crest in any form as part of their identifying profile picture or headline banner.
