Have you or your team used technology in an innovative way during the past couple of years? One of the conference sessions is a time for sharing what has been collectively learnt and how we can benefit from innovation elsewhere.
It would be very helpful to hear from any chaplaincy on how they responded. A short paragraph sent to Steve Buckeridge about the need it met, how it has been effective and any other learning would be great.
