Digital Church Webinar 4: 

Digital Church beyond Lockdown

Thursday, June 11th, 3.30pm

What do we mean by Digital Church in theory and in practice? What’s the history, what are the definitions? What choices do we have in putting that theory into practice? And how do we maximise community over performance? What’s it like in practice? What are the biblical principles around Digital Church?


Hosts: Pete Phillips and Kevin Bennett
