Helping you develop your church social media
During these unprecedented times, many churches and Churches Together groups are developing their social media presence – making the most of the opportunity we’ve been given to creatively share the good news of Jesus beyond the four walls of our buildings.

Covid-19: Digital tools for church
More than 150 online resources collated at covid.churcheshandbook.co.uk - a crowdsourced index of useful digital communication tools for church leaders, communications teams and church staff to refer to during the coronavirus outbreak.
Everyone Welcome to the Future
Everyone Welcome to the Future, published on 28th May 2020, aims to help churches make the most of opportunities to connect with people online.
Supported by Durham University Centre for Digital Theology and CPAS, the team explain on their website: "There are a lot of new online churchgoers - the document tries to work out how many. Then it suggests how to welcome people into church and faith today, and how to plan for a mixed in-person-online church future. Lockdown and online give us a unique opportunity to re-think and re-grow our churches."
