Smartphone App for Sunday Giving?

  42 views

I hear talk of the CRCNA developing a smartphone app for Sunday offering giving. Does this have validity?

I'm involved in Stewardship at Living Hope in Peterborough and this would be a great way to encourage the younger generation. Could I possibly stay informed on developments in this area?

Hi Pete - Yes, you are correct that we are developing a phone app that will have the capacity for online giving. The app is currently in a test phase with churches in Classis Niagara and we are hoping to have it go live across Canada this fall. The app of course is capable of doing way more than provide ways for people to give - it's also an outreach tool and a way for churches to communicate with members so that they get important information (prayers, announcements) right into the palms of their hands. Additionally members will be able to watch worship videos if unable to attend on a given Sunday, if their church makes such recordings. There will be many other features, so stay tuned.

So this is a Canada-only app? Are there plans for a U.S. version?

Hi Amy - for now it's just for Canadian churches, We're still in the test phase, working in one specific classis, but looking forward to a Canada wide launch in the fall. But yes, we're also looking at incorporating US churches and hoping to test it with a few churches in the next little while and see what kind of issues they may encounter.
