Digital Team

The Digital Team was created in October 2016 to develop the Church of England's approach to the web, social media and wider technological innovation.

The work of the Digital Team at Church House is part of Renewal & Reform – helping us become a growing Church for all people and for all places. 

The Digital Team is based in the Communications department and is also part of the recently established Evangelism & Discipleship team. It works particularly closely with Church House Publishing on a range of initiatives. This integrated approach enables the Digital Team to maximise output with colleagues across the organisation.The four key areas of work focused on are:

  • Evangelism
  • Discipleship
  • Sharing the good work of churches
  • Developing campaigns at key moments in the Christian year such as Lent, Advent and Christmas.

These are underpinned by the Church having a strong and growing social media presence, transformed national websites and using technologies such as voice and apps to help meet people where they are at with their faith.

The first triennium of funding ran from 2017 to 2019 and the second triennium of funding running from 2020 to 2022 has been secured.
