What impact is social and digital media having on religion? Here Bex Lewis explores its impact on the Church. She finds that as the Church starts engaging its followers online it has become a space to debate issues, connect to others and reach people and, in turn, humanise the Church. Church activities are being taken back out into the online world and Church leaders have taken to digital platforms to speak out on social and political debates from Brexit to international terrorism. Public conversations have always been key for public theology but the Information Age we’re living in means that many of these public conversations will today take place in the digital sphere.
