Top apps, tools and websites for students

Posted by Anne Witton on Friday, September 7, 2018, In : Resources 


As I’ve gone back to studying, I’ve found some useful tools to help. As this new academic year kicks off, I thought it would be useful to share my favourites:

  1. Reference manager - Zotero (free). Zotero is a brilliant way of organising all your sources including books, papers, presentations, journal articles, videos, podcasts and more. It’s really easy to generate bibliographies from your source material and use tagging to organise and sort your material efficiently. It really is an excell...

Posted by Anne Witton on Thursday, August 30, 2018, In : Prayer 


For a few months now, I’ve been using PrayerMate Send which is a brilliant way to help people know what to pray for in my ministry. It’s ideal for anyone in Christian ministry, churches, youth groups, social action projects, charities and anyone that wants to encourage others to pray for their work.

PrayerMate is a great, free app for smartphones which allows users to organise the things they’re praying for, add contacts, create lists and subscribe to feeds from organisations and individ...

4 reasons to memorise Scripture (and 6 apps to help)

Posted by Anne Witton on Monday, January 15, 2018, In : Reflections 


In the 'olden days', most children went to Sunday school where one of the things they would have learnt is to memorise Scripture. These days, many of us are growing up with a poor knowledge of God’s word and relying on our Bible apps on our phones. And yet memorising Scripture is vital. Here are 4 important reasons why:

(1) Warfare

We can become complacent and forget that we’re engaged in spiritual warfare and yet the Bible says ‘Resist the devil and he will flee from you’. Je...

Table Talk app review

Posted by Anne Witton on Wednesday, January 13, 2016, In : App review 
I have just discovered a brilliant free app for iOS and Android called Table Talk. Table Talk is described as 'A Game of Conversations' and is designed to help groups of friends to have meaningful conversations about the big questions of life (as well as some hilarious banter along the way).



The app is free to download and there are 12 packs within it, all of which can be downloaded for free. They are:

  1. Table Talk for Friends
  2. Table Talk for Forces
  3. Table Talk for Uni Students
  4. Table Talk for Scotland...

The Gospel Coalition app review

Posted by Anne Witton on Thursday, July 9, 2015, In : App review 


I’m a fan of the Gospel Coalition website for its mix of news, opinion, reviews, videos and talks from a range of respected Christian commentators*. The Gospel Coalition is a fellowship of conservative evangelical churches throughout North America, directed by Tim Keller and Don Carson (who I still think bears an uncanny resemblance to Johnny Ball).

The iOS and Android apps make that content easily accessible on mobile devices, so I thought I’d check them out. My first impression of the iP...

Perspective - Free spiritual conversation app

Posted by Anne Witton on Monday, June 1, 2015, In : App review 


It can sometimes be difficult to know how to get a conversation about spiritual things started without it seeming weird, which is why I like using tools like Soularium which make spiritual discussions natural and fun.

Another tool that I’ve found helpful is the Perspective app, which has the added bonus that it’s free and you always have it with you as it’s on your phone. It can help you explore your worldview on your own, but is probably more useful with one or two other people so that ...

Gospel memory verses - BibleMinded app

Posted by Anne Witton on Tuesday, July 15, 2014, In : App review 
Recently, I've been trying to get better at memorising bits of the Bible that I can use to explain the gospel to people. Here's a simple gospel outline and 10 short Bible verses (NIV).

  • God created men and women for a relationship with him.
    [John 17: 3] Now this is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.

  • God gave us free will. We all choose to rebel against God (Sin = rebellion against God. Putting ourselves first instead of him and breaking ...
