Rather than expecting people to physically come to the church as a first step, we now have a ‘digital’ way for the Church to go to the people. It reminds me of the passage in Romans 10 which says, ‘how are they to believe in one they have never heard’.
An excellent day organised by the ambitious Church of England digital team and inspiring to see how God is working in the Church to help us make much more of the digital opportunity we have both to strengthen the church but also to connect with society.
Do watch out for future roadshows coming to a town near you soon, including Oxford (March 2020), Exeter (June 2020) and Birmingham (Nov 2020).
Pray for God’s blessing on this team and on the Church of England as we learn more about using digital as a way of strengthening the church and connecting with society in fresh ways.
