Welcome to Godculture
Established in November 2011, Godculture is an online magazine that showcases Christianity in the culture around us. We aim to provide a voice for the lost generation of the Church, and to present relevant discussion and commentary on issues our generation are faced with day-to-day. We have to understand the culture around us in order to influence it.
With over 25 writers, including youth workers, journalists, teachers, students, sports coaches, editors, musicians and more, Godculture highlights the issues that really matter in our modern society.
Since launching, we’ve worked with some great organisations committed to making the Kingdom of God a reality, including Sorted Magazine, Stewardship, XLP, and Share Creative. We share a vision to equip the church to engage with the communities and cultures around us.
So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognise what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you. Romans 12: 1-2 [MSG]
We have an great team who work hard to bring you content of the highest quality, but the real stars are the 25+ gifted writers who create brilliant articles on a regular basis.
