With 255 million people using Twitter, and over a billion people using Facebook, if your church is serious about reaching out to people you can’t ignore social media. This day course will introduce you to the main social media platforms, and show you how using social media can support your mission. We’ll also cover good safeguarding practice online. This day is for you if your church is thinking about using social media, or has started doing so.

Dr Bex Lewis will be leading the day. Bex is passionate about helping people engage with the digital world in a positive way, where she has 17+ years of experience. Trained as a mass communications historian, writing the original history of Keep Calm and Carry On, she is Director of The BIGBible Project (Durham University) and social media consultancy Digital Fingerprint, and is author of ‘Raising Children in a Digital Age’ (Lion Hudson, 2014).
