Covid19 church resource list

A crowdsourced index of useful digital communication tools for church leaders, communications teams and church staff to refer to during the coronavirus outbreak.

As churches across the UK, and the world, have had to transition their day-to-day activities online this handbook exists to serve local church leaders, communication teams, and church staff during the coronavirus outbreak. All of the resources listed here have been crowdsourced from volunteers who want to serve and equip the church at this time. This resource started in the UK, and as a result, some of the resources may be UK specific, however, the vast majority will be applicable regardless of geography.

This used to be a Google Doc running on top of the Google Docs Enhancement Suite. As the number of people using it grew, there were increasing issues with the site performance. The team at OneSheep have been working hard to make the resource list easier to update, search for relevant resources, and share links.
