Even the Church of England is embracing Pokémon GO

And you thought the modern church was out of touch?

With the launch of Pokémon GO, the Church of England has become unexpectedly relevant to many gamers: as the augmented reality app pulls in details from real-world locations, it will often establish Pokéstops and Pokégyms - both key locations for the game's players - at churches. 

Realising the app has presented many churches with a "great opportunity to meet people from their area who might not normally come to church", the Church of England's digital media officer Tallie Proud has issued a set of guidelines on how churches can catch 'em all. 

It makes for brilliant reading...
