BT Christian Network 

The BT Christian Network is one of several different Networks supported by BT. Our goal is to be a real benefit to both BT and its employees through positively contributing to workplace issues and supporting members where needed. We think being a positive approach is crucial to our role. There are three specific objectives which BTCN has adopted:

  • Acting as a central reference point for Christian information in BT
  • Providing a Christian perspective on business policy and strategies
  • Supporting and encouraging Christians in BT 

BT Christian Network has about 900 members worldwide. With people in about 15 countries (although most are based in UK), we have regular prayer cover from our members and about 10 different groups meeting regularly.  This includes overseas in India and Hungary. We also have a young professionals group. BTCN is formally recognised by BT Inclusion scheme as a valid support group in the workplace. We meet regularly with HR to discuss issues, achievements and improvements. Alpha workplace courses are sometimes run for employees interested in finding out more about the Christian faith (about 7 done so far).
Some of our key initiatives are listed below:  

  • Free bibles (about 1,200 given away)
  • Prayer requests for anyone who wants them
  • Regular weekly thoughts sent out
  • Bible in a year study/reading programme ran for several years
  • Speakers via conference calls
  • Summer camp run on a few occasions
  • Open days

In conjunction with other BT groups and HR we recently ran a 2 day open event for all BT staff via our corporate website. During this time people could see information about Jesus, and also about the BT Christian Network, and they were able to ask questions, raise queries or place comments.
The group is organised via a leadership team that meets twice monthly; once a month, mainly for prayer, and once a month for planning. Local fellowships or interest groups support members on the ground. The chair meets with HR once a month. Our website is organised into a Social Media style so members can share news stories. We have an inspiration page where people can find more about Jesus and Christianity and a daily prayer for the day on this site. There is also a face book page available.
