Church of England launches ‘Ask Alexa’ skill
The Church of England has launched its ‘Ask Alexa’ Amazon skill which will enable users to ask the Church of England for prayers, explanations of the Christian faith and location-based information about local church events and services.
Daily prayer resources are central to the skill, with the prayer for the day, morning, evening and night-time prayer, a grace and special event prayers all recorded for this project.
The skill is also integrated with A Church Near You, helping users to find their nearest services and events, and seeks to increase users’ knowledge of the Christian faith by answering questions such as: what is the Bible? Who is God? What is a Christian?
It’s integration with A Church Near You also highlights the importance of churches ensuring their profile on the site is populated with up-to-date information.
