THE Church Army and Premier Christian Radio were just two of the organisations which took part in last month's Internet Evangelism Day ( http://www.internetevangelismday.com ). Organised by the Internet Evangelism Coalition (an umbrella group of outreach ministries), groups were encouraged to support "a worldwide focus day" , and were provided with free online resources.
The Church Army supported the event through its www.word-on-the-web.co.uk
site. The site provides Bible-study notes and other resources, including book and music reviews and discussion forums. Subscribers receive a short daily Bible passage and accompanying notes; all services are free. About 7000 people based in 100 countries are regular subscribers. The Church Army magazine Share-it is also now downloadable free of charge from www.churcharmy.org.uk .
Premier Christian Radio relaunched its website www.theConfessor.co.uk to mark Internet Evangelism Day. The site is an online confessional, where Christians can study Bible verses on confession and forgiveness, and then have the chance to confess their sins on screen or privately. Premier assures browsers that any typed information remains in their own computer and cannot be read by anyone else. The confessional site is part of Premier Lifeline, which offers help and support online and by phone on lifestyle questions ( www.premier.org.uk).
