Repeat post – wiki video

I’m now experimenting with a wiki to enable the organisation, planning and documentation of the congregation.

If you don’t know what I’m talking about, see this video:


First posted quite a while ago here.


  1. Ah goodie. I’m sure you’ll let us know how it goes 🙂

    (What an *awful*ly annoying voice-over on the video…)

  2. Do you have the critical mass of people times effort/person to get the wiki going?

  3. Sounds a wonderful idea – now what topic can we use and discuss to improve our worship.

  4. That is a good question ERP. At the moment, the wiki is really working as an intranet. (Or perhaps an extranet). It means that several of us can work together on a page without being physically located together.

    One of the things that are very prevalent in churches is the presence of dispersed teams. Keeping everyone one track by e-mail can be quite hard.

    A good example of what we are doing at the moment, is using a private, protected part of the wiki so that I can work on wedding bookings with our weddings organiser.

    In time, and with help from others, I will be developing various bits of cathedral documentation. We are good at doing things in St Mary’s but less good at writing them down.

    Thus, a liturgical manual is one of the goals of the wiki project.

    Also things like “How to organise a ceildih in St Mary’s” and “How we organise champagne for Easter Day”.

  5. “How to choose the post-Evensong pub”

    And the answer to both the ones you posed is obviously “get the choir to do it”!


  6. I remember signing up for “St Mary’s Hub” a while back, but I didn’t record its URL, and I can’t now find it. Is that the wiki you’re talking about, or are you now starting from scratch with something different?

    I’m just curious to see how you’re using the technology, in case there’s anything we can learn and apply up here.
