Ai church scenarios

Church life scenarios
by Youthscape

What will AI bring to church life, what will it take away?
  • What is it?  "PDF cards"
  • Who's it for?  Church small-groups
  • Purpose  Explore the impact of AI in church life
  • Background needed  NONE

How could AI impact our teaching, youthgroups, evangelism or pastoral care? These “church life scenarios” consider the benefits and dilemmas of AI in ministry by stimulating thoughtful group discussion. The scenarios encourage you to apply a faith understanding as you delve into the practical, moral, and theological implications of AI in our churches.

In addition, we have prepared Leaders' Notes" to help stimulate and guide discussion.

AI and the afterlife

Theos - AI grief and death

This new report explores the intersection of technology with death and grief. This include so-called ‘grief tech’ – AI–powered machines that simulate deceased loved ones. These are trained on personal letters, videos, emails, voice notes, and are meant to aid the bereaved in their journey through grief. But do they provide pastoral care for those who mourn or is this deep-fake deception of the vulnerable?

This report sheds light on technologies already in use in some countries and its potential emotional repercussions.
