How religious communities are embracing technology during lockdown - Alone Together podcast
In this episode of Alone Together you’ll hear how religious communities are staying connected during lockdown through technology.
Join hosts Matt Millard and Morven McIntyre as they learn more about both the practising of Christian and Muslim faiths during the lockdown and how they’ve adapted now that they can no longer visit their place of worship.
Dan McLaughlin speaks to Reverend Andy Salmon from Salford, who is keeping his church connected via Zoom.
We also hear how the holiest month of the Muslim calendar, Ramadan, has been adapted during lockdown through the use of technology. Tanzeer Rahaman, a practising Muslim from Bolton, shares his experience of fasting and reaching out to others, and how technology plays a role in this.
