Please forgive the slightly off topic plug!
Premier Christian Media who own Premier Radio and leading UK Christian magazines, Christianity and Youthwork have launched a brand new website; New Media Centre of Excellence. The site describes its aims as follows:
Inspire | To envision churches and the Christian community with what could be achieved through New Media.
Equip | To educate and inform with practical guidance and expertise on a range of New Media subjects.
Connect | To link churches, projects, organisations and individuals to increase the impact of our combined efforts and resources.
Those of us who are familiar with Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and the Blogoshpere know how powerful social networking and digital media can be and if churches and Christian organisations want to reach out effectively to a huge chunk of the population, then they need to learn to be savvy in this arena.
I have been asked to be a contributor to the site and hopefully will be posting regular articles on politics and also on worship, which is one of my other passions.
My first article, ‘How New Media Has Changed the Face of Worship’, is now on the site and was written exclusively for the launch.
Please head over, take a look and let them know what you think.
