Our smart speaker apps are integrated closely with A Church Near You to help you find out about services and events going on close to where you are throughout the year.
The apps also seek to increase users' knowledge of the Christian faith by answering questions such as:
- What is the Bible?
- Who is God?
- What is a Christian?
Many of the answers draw on material from the Pilgrim discipleship course and The Pilgrim Way: A Short Guide to the Christian Faith which also feature in the Our Faith section of this site.
Watch Archbishop John Sentamu ask for The Lord's Prayer
Watch Chine and baby Keir ask for a Grace before a meal
Our future plans
This is an ongoing project, built jointly by the Church’s Digital and Church House Publishing teams with specialist developer Aimer Media Ltd. We’re planning to ensure users can find more answers to faith questions and to explore on other platforms in the future.
The audio content features on the Church’s website as part of the prayer of the day. It will be integrated into Church House Publishing apps and audiobooks in due course.
