Labs Live

Church of England Digital Labs aims to gather together the many Christian coders, creatives and techies who have the skills and passion for using technology to aid the church.

Our first event, held in East London on Saturday 24th February 2018, saw around 60 people join together who have passion for using technology to equip and enable our 16,500 local churches. Delegates travelled from across the UK, Europe and USA to look at two broad themes: how to bring people to faith and how to grow people’s faith.

Hundreds applied for the event and it was run with a capacity crowd of delegates using the Google Sprint development approach. Seven proposals were refined in the afternoon and presented to a team of judges in the evening. Find out more in the video below:


The next Church of England Labs Live will be taking place on Saturday 16th March 2019 in Manchester. 

Applications to attend have now closed. 


Digital Labs is part of the Church of England’s Renewal and Reform programme, aimed at helping us become a growing Church for all people and for all places.
