Digital and Online Support
Digital Ministry Webinars
Over the last few months, all of our lives have been changed in ways that none of us could have imagined, and the Church has had to rapidly re-imagine its mission, ministry and understanding of community. Without question, this has presented new and complex challenges, but equally it has also brought with it real and exciting opportunities too. Creating a positive online presence has never been more important, and there has been an explosion of online activity with churches either greatly enhancing their online activity, or even exploring online ministry for the very first time.
There have been many excellent examples of innovative worship and teaching, and perhaps some things that have not gone so well! One thing is certain though, online worship and teaching is here to stay.
With this in mind, St Padarn’s is pleased introduce a series of webinars focused on Digital Ministry over the summer. Together, we will reflect on the changes that the pandemic has initiated; share experiences from churches right across the Province and offer some very practical help and advice on everything from holding a coffee morning on Zoom to editing videos for your Facebook page!
The series will start by discussing online ministry and the crucial role that this is playing play in the mission of the Church both now and going forward followed by a session on what ‘iPresence’ is and what creative and effective ministry is within an increasingly digitalised culture.
Each webinar will last 45 minutes with an additional 30 minutes for Q&As. St Padarn’s is delighted that we are able to offer these webinars free of charge, and further details including how to book your place can be seen below.
