Digital Resources from the Church of England

The Church of England is publishing a range of digital resources for the days and weeks ahead for all to use at this time.  

What is currently available?

There are a range of Christian resources already available:

  • Read a blog which outlines how a church can inexpensively stream a sermon, service, event or thought for the day from the vicar or member of the church in situations where people are unable to attend church. 

What will we be developed in the weeks ahead?

In the days and weeks ahead we will be significantly expanding our output:

  • Simple daytime prayer and night prayer service – building on the existing daily prayer feed, we will record audio to accompany daytime prayer and night prayer per day, which will be available via an updated app and accompanying podcasts.
  • More video content – this will include video services and more content for Holy Week and Easter. In addition, we will make Holy Week audio content available.
  • Using AChurchNearYou.com - signpost those churches that are live streaming services and events. Churches need to add the 'Livestream' tag to their services and events that will be broadcast. Remember to add into the description, how people can watch this. You can add a link to the platform you're using to stream, such as your Facebook Page or YouTube Channel. Find out more about live streaming services and events.
  • Mental health reflections – daily reflections to help people, especially at a time when they are feeling lonely, isolated or anxious. 
  • Increasing the number of webinars - to help churches stream sermons, events and make the most of social media. Sign up for free.
