Re-imagining Church: Canopy Swansea

Re-imagining Church: Canopy Swansea

Over in South Wales, there’s a group of people re-imagining the purpose and function of the modern church. We asked Dan Evans to provide us with a brief introduction of Canopy in Swansea – here’s...
Innovation: It Will Be Exhilarating

Innovation: It Will Be Exhilarating

Innovation is a funny thing really. It’s easy to innovate and yet few people do it well. At its base, innovation is just solving a problem. The textbook example is the invention of the Post It...
A Church of Innovators

A Church of Innovators

Innovation in the Church is growing. There are people and organisations, with amazing (and simple) ideas, making strides in evangelism, church and global justice.   Over the next few months we’re focusing on innovation and...

Tweets, Feet and Mountains

I don’t think I’m the only one who, being inundated with news feeds and overwhelmed by link after link, is feeling tired, lost and distracted from reality. We are surrounded by media communications, and our lives permeate with technology. But what is it going to take for us to actually chat face to face rather than...
Obama Vs Romney: In God We Trust

Obama Vs Romney: In God We Trust

There has never been an atheist president. I’m yet to hear of an atheist presidential candidate. Indeed, current and previous competitors not only bring their skills and abilities to the electoral fore, but also their approach to religion, faith, and moral attitudes. But let’s strip away the arrogant campaign videos, the bold promises, and the cat fights...
The Lure of Hypocrisy

The Lure of Hypocrisy

I feel sick of slick. I feel sick of people who smile sweetly, who present a ‘got it together’ image. Sick of downloading vodcasts and podcasts of the latest Christian personality. I feel sick of the celebrity culture in the church. The ‘I follow Apollos’ mentality that decides whether I’m in or out, credible or not. Bright...
We're back....

We’re back….

  We’re back. Did you miss us? After a summer of events, conferences and jet-setting, the Godculture team are settling back into the rhythm and routine of everyday life. It’s been nearly two months since our last article, and we’re itching to get going again.    Trips to Italy, Shepton Mallet, London, Keswick, Essex and...
A Conversation With: VietnamtheMovie

A Conversation With: VietnamtheMovie

I recently met up with Simon Watkins, AKA Vietname the movie; a digital artist and illustrator whose project on John’s gospel provided a creative example of evangelism. We chatted about his art, influences and future projects…   First off, tell me a little about Vietnamthemovie. Where did the name come from? And what’s the main...
Inspiration to Believe

Inspiration to Believe

I have a confession: I’m a history of art student and a Christian, and I don’t particularly like religious art. I find it either timid or grossly ostentatious, and on both accounts not reflective of the faith I have. However I’ve found a painting that gives me inspiration to believe. Caravaggio’s ‘The Taking of Christ’...
Why Are We Always On Love's Side?

Why Are We Always On Love’s Side?

I know people who have had affairs and most of the time, it hasn’t ended well. On the other hand, I expect that lots of couples I admire have gone through affairs and resolved their issues quietly. Not everything is as it seems. When doors are closed people hurt each other and when they open the doors back...
[Review] Nefarious: Merchant of Souls

[Review] Nefarious: Merchant of Souls

Have you ever seen a movie that changes the way you view the world? The kind that opens your eyes to something you never knew existed? I often avoid these films. I go to the cinema to be entertained, not to be shocked into forcing an issue upon my conscious. This film was a little...
England's Euro 2012 Review

England’s Euro 2012 Review

As England crashed out of Euro 2012 this weekend, at the predictable stage of the Quarter Finals, it would only be fair to give an analysis on what these four games have told. The players, the manager, the state of world football – what next for our wimpering Lions? Let’s begin with a chilling assessment...
Nefarious: Merchant of Souls

Tuesday 26 June sees the UK premiere of Nefarious: Merchant of Souls, an award-winning documentary highlighting the issue of human trafficking. Godculture have been invited to London’s Leicester Square for the premier, and we’ll be featuring a number of exclusive articles about the documentary and the MASSIVE issue of human trafficking. Why should we care about...
5 Social Networks For Your Church (and how to use them)

5 Social Networks For Your Church (and how to use them)

The internet is transforming the way we communicate with each other and disseminate information. Churches, youth ministries and Christian events are beginning to unlock the potential of social media. But which networks should your church have a presence on, and why? And how are they best used? We’ll take a look at the main options...
#thisischurch: Home Groups

#thisischurch: Home Groups

“Home groups are completely outdated,” a close friend explained to me the other day, “the way the world learns has changed and home groups just haven’t evolved to take this into account.”   Maybe you’re familiar with home groups. You may know them as life groups, bible study groups, cell groups, charis groups, prayer groups,...
