Church as Community in an Age of Digital Media

image of International Journal of Public Theology

This article flips on its head Grace Davie’s notion of ‘believing without belonging’. From a consideration of the internet and social networking media as a public space and a new ‘public’ or fifth estate, the article proceeds through a discussion of religious activity online to investigate the concept of community, the function of communication theology and the place of morality in online activity. Finally, the article considers the popularity of Sunday Assembly and concludes that there is a significant move towards belonging without believing both on- and offline.
