• The Violet Crown City Church in Austin used AI technology, ChatGPT, to create an entire Sunday service, a concept thought up by Pastor Jay Cooper. Cooper said the AI created a 15-minute service that he then had to fill out and 'beef up' with additional prompts.
  • While the service was successful, both Cooper and church attendee Ernest Chambers agreed that the service lacked a key element: emotion. Cooper stressed the importance of the 'human touch' and the 'messiness of humanity' in worship, and stated that the AI-generated service is not planned to be repeated.
