Church Tech UK was initially setup in January 2014. The vision of Church Tech UK is to equip, support, encourage, develop and resource churches in technical aspects.

Church Tech UK is an independent organisation aiming to work across  multiple denominations. We believe that technology and media play an important role in church life. In a world were technology is always evolving it can be difficult at times to keep up. Through partnerships with various organisations, businesses and industry professionals we want to see churches succeed in using technology and media enabling a culture where it is not something you need or should do but want to do.

Church Tech UK is ran by Anthony Lear. Anthony works for Hawthorn as a Senior Project Technician focusing on video.  Anthony has served on many church tech teams across the UK, offering both advice and support to many as well.

Having worked in various technical roles over the last 12 years has helped Anthony to develop a range of skills and knowledge.

Anthony lives in Sheffield and is married to Fiona who works as a Maths teacher.
