Getting Record to our members while churches are closed

Keep family and friends informed by sharing this article.

In these unprecedented times, Adventist Record remains committed to serving the Seventh-day Adventist Church in the South Pacific and keeping our members informed, inspired, connected and nurtured. However, with widespread church closures and social distancing requirements due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the Record team have received multiple inquiries regarding the distribution of the print edition.

Here are some answers to our most frequently asked questions.

Will Record continue to be printed?

Churches and conferences have told us that they still want to receive the print magazine, so at this stage Record will continue being created, printed and distributed as normal.

Can we alter our subscription? If so, how?

Yes. If you want to reduce the number of copies received or put the subscription on hold until churches reopen, email

Can Record be sent to the home addresses of our church members?

Although a great idea in theory, with more than 24,000 copies of Record being distributed to churches across the South Pacific every fortnight, unfortunately we are unable to make this a reality. Instead, we would encourage you to turn Record distribution into a ministry. By mailing or letterboxing copies to church members—particularly those who don’t know how or simply can’t access Record online—you can bring good news and uplifting stories directly to their door.

What are most churches doing regarding their Record subscription?

A number of churches have altered their magazine subscription, either changing the distribution address and/or the number of copies received.

Where can I access your online content?

We believe the better question is “where can’t you access it?” Adventist Record is active on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, and there are regular updates posted to our website. At this time we especially encourage you to subscribe to our e-news which is circulated every Friday, and you can also access our online magazine if you are unable to receive a physical copy.
