During the first lockdown, with public worship suspended, parish churches needed to make use of digital technology to broadcast services.

Help has been provided by the digital team at Church House, led by the C of E’s head of digital communications Adrian Harris.

On this week’s podcast, Ed Thornton talks to Adrian and his colleague Amaris Cole, senior digital communications manager, about how churches have embraced digital technology during the pandemic, and what the challenges are in the second lockdown.

They also talk about the C of E’s Advent and Christmas campaign, Comfort and Joy, which seeks to provide consolation and hope at this difficult time (News, 9 October).

The official Comfort and Joy booklet of reflections can be purchased here
