Considering the next phase of online church - An online event

First published 19th June 2020

As Lockdown eases we begin look to a future where churches services will once again be able to take place, in one form or another, within our church buildings.

How might we take what we have learnt about doing church online and carry this into the future?
How might mixed-mode service delivery, where services take place in buildings, but are also accessible to those who cannot attend physically, be possible?
What opportunities does this present us with and what are the challenges we need to recognise and navigate within this?

Please join us for a conversation about the future and to share your experiences and reflections.

21st July 2020
14.00 – 15.30

This Zoom seminar is aimed at Incumbents and those responsible for planning worship. Attendance is ideally limited to one person per benefice as this is a conversation not a webinar and we want to allow space for all to contribute and discuss the issues concerned.

Please click here to register to attend:


● What have we learnt that might inform the future? – Adrian Harris; CofE Head of Digital

● Group discussions sharing local learning and reflections.

● What are the missional possibilities for future online offerings?

● Three discussions (participants to choose one), considering the approaches, technology and challenges of the possibilities:

ROOM 1 – Providing effective additional online or telephone services as part of the calendar of worship offered by your benefice.
ROOM 2 – Live streaming ‘in-building services’.
ROOM 3 – Beyond services, connecting with and serving our communities online.
[Rooms will be recorded and all content made available to participants afterwards]

● Plenary – final comments.

● Conclusion – further support, advice and guidance available.
