This paper shows how three PCE churches in Gauteng used select social media sites, particularly YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and WhatsApp as well as sermons to explain what they believed a Christian’s role was in the 2014 elections. By analysing the messages of these churches on some social media sites and in pastor’s sermons the ideal of civic society and political engagement of these churches is brought to the fore.
