PREFACE
While working as web developer of a church website, I could see the potential for it tobe used as a tool to make the church more accessible and relevant to the non-Christian/unchurched folk in the local community. This dissertation is the outcome of myinvestigation to find possibilities for doing this. Although an academic document, I haveendeavoured to write it in a practical style that may be accessible and helpful to localchurches looking to create effective websites.Having presented a case for the Internet to be treated as a culture in its own right andexplained the challenge for the local church to contextualise the Christian message intoit, I then use Primary and Secondary literature sources to propose possible ways toproceed in this task.I gratefully acknowledge the generous assistance given to me by the staff at RedcliffeCollege, especially my supervisor Rev. Dr. Colin Bulley for his valuable academicadvice. I also wish to thank all the respondents who participated in my surveys.I am also grateful for access to the expertise of Mr. Tony Whittaker, editor of theInternet Evangelism Day website. His understanding and sharing of this vision has beenan enormous encouragement.My thanks too, go to my family and special friends for their patience and support.
