What have churches been doing?
This year has seen one of the biggest explosions of creativity the church has ever seen, as churches around the country respond to the needs of members and wider communities.
Our first survey made this clear, with 90% of churches provided online worship and teaching and 65% using telephone-befriending. Churches are caring through delivering shopping, growing social media community groups, providing food and clothes banks, delivering letters and gifts for adults and children, and offering comfort for the grieving.
But the breadth of church activity cannot be summarised only in stats, and so we’ve been gathering stories and ideas from across the country.
