Abp. Makgoba Joins Soundcloud

Adapted from Archbishop Makgoba’s weblog

The Most Rev. Thabo Makgoba, Anglican Archbishop of Cape Town, will offer Advent reflections through Soundcloud in the pilot program of a planned audio ministry for the Anglican Church of Southern Africa.

The reflections will be available online on his weblog, and through church websites, from one or two days before each Sunday in Advent.

“Communication is part and parcel of the glue which binds the Church together,” he said. “We have bishops, theologians, and others in the church who have gifts in audio ministry, which until now have not been used properly because of the limited opportunities on radio.

“But now the Internet makes it feasible to make material available on-demand easily and cheaply using technology which is accessible to all.

“I hope that as we develop our communication strategies in the province and the dioceses we can integrate audio ministry into an integrated range of initiatives, from the provincial website and the new online Southern Anglican to the e-reader project based at Bishopscourt.”
