The Church of Ireland Theological Institute is pleased to announce a webinar event for all Church of Ireland members to explore ‘online church in a post–lockdown world’.

This event is free of charge and is scheduled to take place on Friday, 16th April, from 10.00am to 12.30pm.  (Registration is required in advance – please see details below).

The morning will consist of two sessions led by the Venerable Bob Jackson.  It will include opportunities for group discussion, a coffee break, and a final plenary session during which Archbishop Michael Jackson will offer a short personal response to the webinar content.

Bob Jackson was a Government Economic Adviser in the days before Mrs Thatcher was invented. After twenty years of parish ministry in Yorkshire he became a missioner working for the two English archbishops, then an archdeacon. More recently he has focussed on the theory and practice of church growth.  Having tried to retire he came out of retirement to help think through good practice and the future of online church. Bob is the author of numerous publications, most recently Everybody Welcome Online and Everybody Welcome to the Future. He leads a families–based fresh expression of church in his village of Eyam in Derbyshire and invents pilgrimage routes in his spare time. He is married to Christine with two grown up children and four grandchildren.
