What is CODEC?
CODEC began in 2009 with a nationwide survey of Biblical Literacy in the UK. We have since developed a host of projects, research, conferences, learning opportunities; all exploring Christian Communication in the 21st century - many making use of social media and online technology.
We’ve worked alongside many churches and agencies exploring how we can improve our communication of the Gospel and how the Bible might be communicated in meaningful ways in contemporary society.
