  1. Greetings Tony,

    Thanks for the tip! My plan is to find some funding so that we can appoint a Priest to oversee the ministry. So I will follow that one up. Thanks!

  2. Hi Mark,

    The cathedral in second life has really sparked off stuff in my mind, as you can probably tell from the number of posts from me so far today. 🙂

    I listened to your sermon and heard about the issue of time, and I recognise that it is an issue.

    I wonder if it might be possible to approach the Church Army about some funding and personel for the cathedral.

    They might fit because the are into mission and evangelism is a large way, and have presences in many parts of the Anglican communion and so could be acceptable in leadership to the widely spread congregation that the cathedral could have.
    – see for the links.


    In Christ,

  3. Hi Mark and Bosco Peters,

    I don’t know if you have come accross it at all, but there has been a virtual church community running by e-mail only since 1993 at and then is also St Pixels at

    So I think that virtual church communities are becoming more authentic and recognised.


    In Christ,

  4. Very exciting address, Mark!
    I’ve been thinking of asking the question about sacraments in web 2.0 on my blog – and here you are you’ve raised it here – I have no answers – but I think you are pointing the way.
    I’m surprised how popular my new virtual chapel is on my site:
    My chapel is only about web 1.5 though 🙂
