A digital awakening has been sweeping Christian churches and ministries worldwide. Adapting to lockdown realities, churches and ministries are adopting the Familheey app to spiritually reconnect with and rejuvenate their communities. Christianity today is in a state of churn. As one of the world’s pre-eminent religions, Christianity today accounts for 31% of the world population, numbering about 2.4 billion people. The pandemic has put Christian Churches to test—and they have responded with resilience, play a key role in the frontline of the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.
According to Bloomberg News, the pandemic has given more people a reason to seek solace in God and faith-based communities at the same time that houses of worship were forced to close their doors. Pastors have resorted to streaming on YouTube or Facebook Live in a bid to keep congregations engaged. Membership in spiritual apps has surged. The top Christian meditation apps raked in 2.3 million downloads in the U.S. from March to August, up 325% from the same period a year earlier, according to mobile data and analytics company App Annie.
Despite challenges of the lockdown, The Church has offered faith hope, and courage as powerful tools to enabling communities to navigate the pandemic. Christian hospitals, schools, orphanages, old age homes have all played a key role in this area. Churches are now looking for more meaningful connections, purposeful engagements and to become an essential part of the growth of their communities.
Familheey has emerged as the ideal platform for Christian faith communities to connect, engage and grow during the challenging lockdown months. In a first of its kind initiative, Familheey has become a digital transformation partner of the Catholic Church’s Holy Cross Family Ministries (HCFM).
