C of E builds up its digital presence

28 July 2017

CHRISTIAN digital visionaries are to have their ideas judged by a Lego executive at an event next February.

The senior social innovation manager at the Lego Group, James Poulter, is on a panel of industry experts who will judge which ideas receive funding for development after the digital labs day, part of the Church of England’s Renewal and Reform programme. The day is being run by the head of digital communications at Church House, Westminster, Adrian Harris, in conjunction with its new website.

Anyone interested in pitching an idea about how to increase the C of E’s digital footprint is invited to apply for a place at the event, on 24 February. Different groups will pool ideas, then pitch them at the end of the day to the experts.

“Seeing the Church of England continue to pioneer new initiatives that engage digital culture and innovation is so exciting, and a crucial part of reaching new people with the gospel,” Mr Poulter said. He looked forward to collaborating with those who proposed the winning pitches.
