How has your church embraced technology? Our new competition asks you to showcase how you’ve used technology to benefit your church mission, congregation and local community.
Could technology win a £1,500 donation for your church?
Maybe you’ve installed the latest tech in the fabric of the church itself to make worship easier, more accessible, greener, or safer. Perhaps you’ve taken to virtual services, set up a website, or found new ways of fundraising online. Or maybe you’ve jazzed up your facilities with lights, sound or projection. Has technology helped you to save time, offer a wider range of services or reach more people?
We want to celebrate your solutions, creativity and positive impacts. Whatever your story, we’d love to hear it.
Fifteen Baptist places of worship will be awarded a Regional Winner’s donation of £500, and one overall National Winner will receive a further £1,000.1

Simply, send us your 250-word Tale of Technology, to reach us by 5pm on 30 June 2022 (with a photo if you wish), explaining what technology you’ve embraced, why you chose that particular solution, and what benefits it has brought.

Our panel of judges are looking for how technology has been used to meet a need; how creative/innovative the solution is; and what impact it has made to the church mission and community.
They will select 15 winners, and we’ll announce them in September and share their Tales of Technology here so you can use ideas from other churches around the country and adapt them for your own needs.
2 For the purposes of this competition, a ‘Baptist place of worship’ is defined as being in membership with any of the following bodies: Baptist Union of Great Britain, Baptist Union of Scotland, Baptist Union of Wales, any Regional Associations and/or any existing customer of the Baptist Insurance Company plc.
