Established in 2007 by the Diocese of London to spread the Christian message throughout the world, the London Internet Church has flourished into an organisation that has a 22,000+ strong global email database and a website receiving in excess of 25,000 visitors per month.
Prayer requests, “light-a-candle”, Morning Prayer, Night Prayer as well as sermons and videos of various Anglican services sit at the heart of our offering, enabling us to connect with Christians whenever and wherever they may be. We receive a significant and open-ended grant from Google each year to enable us to advertise our work through AdWords, which produces around 20,000 (PPC) clicks – i.e. site visits – per month.
We are now actively recruiting new volunteers to join the Management Board to help move the charity into the next exciting phase of its development. Key opportunities include how social media is best leveraged, keeping in regular contact with the ever growing email database, harnessing the potential of live streaming services provided by Twitter’s Periscope and Facebook and, ultimately, re-launching the website. The current website is built on the popular and open-source WordPress platform.
Our partnership with St Stephen, Walbrook – situated in the heart of the City of London – and St Martin-in-the-Fields, Trafalgar Square means that we have the potential to make lots of original, compelling content available to a global audience.
We estimate you will need to give 4-6 hours of your time per month and we are actively seeking individuals with communications, digital or social media experience. This is a fantastic opportunity to contribute to a growing charity, for someone who wishes to use their skills to help spread the Christian message to a worldwide audience.
