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 Digital Team at Church House works to support teams across the Church and promotes priorities such as Vision and Strategy. 

The Digital Team is based in the Communications 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 Digital Team has won more than 30 awards from prestigious industry events such as the Digital Impact Awards, CorpComms Awards, Corporate Content Awards and more. These successes celebrate all that dioceses and churches do to engage with websites and social media throughout the year.

'In House Team of the Year' has now been awarded to the Church of England's Digital Team twice.
