#CNMAC14 Speaker Profile with Dr Sara Batts (@drbattytowers)

There’s another excellent line-up for the fifth Christian New Media Conference (1st November 2014, The Brewery, London). With CODEC involved in developing the line-up, we’ve given the speakers the opportunity to answer a few questions:

84rylGRhWho are you, what do you do, and how does your story feed into #CNMAC14?

I’m Sara Batts, and right now I am in my first term as an ordinand at Westcott House. Before this, I wrote a PhD on how churches use websites and social media.

Can you give us a ‘sneak peek’ into your session at #CNMAC14?

It will equip those planning or reviewing their church’s website to think about who they’re writing for, and how to signpost key information for different audiences.

Session description: All things to all people? Who are the audiences for your church website and how do you go about serving them? What are the key issues to consider and how do you communicate well to multiple groups.

The theme for 2014 is ‘Transforming Church, Transforming Society’. What do you see as important areas within this theme?

There is so much that can be done – so many different possibilities I’m not sure I can focus on a few.

What do you think a digital age mean for us, seeking transformational living?

It means we live in a community larger than that which is purely face-to-face; we have the chance to be salt and light for a huge variety of people if we’re present in digital communities.

Outside of your own session, what are you most looking forward to at #CNMAC14?

There’s a great speaker line-up, and I think I’ll also enjoy catching up with those I talk to on Twitter but don’t often see face to face.

Check out more on the conference itself where we’d love to see you (easy to book here), or see the archives from previous years.
