Objectives: To investigate proof of concept, feasibility and efficacy of an online Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) intervention, modified to appeal to Christians who may be reluctant to access secular mental health services. Methods: 52 volunteers with Christian beliefs experiencing low mood or anxiety were recruited (median age=46.5, 25% male) to a pilot randomised waiting-list controlled trial of an online Spiritually-integrated CBT resource, with assessments at baseline, 8 weeks and 12 weeks. Primary outcome measures addressed mood, anxiety and general functioning. Results: No significant differences were found between groups on improvement of primary outcome measures, however there were non-significant trends in favour of those who had access to the course compared with waiting list control on all primary outcome measures. Conclusion: Online CBT targeted at religious groups may be an effective and practical means of promoting evidence-based psychological interventions to individuals who may not otherwise access them.
