Improve your communication

Retain your members and reach new followers

Creating an app for your religious community will give you an instant communication tool that will allow you to stay in constant contact with your members. It will also allow you to promote your beliefs and share them with the world.

Share your calendar

Promote your events, holidays and celebrations

A customized calendar

Create your events directly from the GoodBarber back office or connect an external source to centralize all your events in your app. This way, your followers can see at a glance all the parties and celebrations or appointments of your community. You can add an address to each event, as well as times. You can also create full-day events and display multiple events on the same day.

A universal calendar

Thanks to GoodBarber, the date and time of events are automatically displayed according to the time zone of the user who consults your community calendar.

Spread your word

On the medium that suits you best

Blog

This is one of the most classic mediums: Blog posts. Write your articles, cover all the topics that fit your beliefs and publish them in your app. Blog sections can also be used to create more static content like holy books or excerpts from foundational texts.

Podcasts

Podcasts are a great way to preach your word in a more dynamic way. Your congregation will be able to listen to your sermons and talks wherever they are. They can even listen to them while using other apps on their phone. To broadcast your podcasts you can upload them directly into your GoodBarber back office, or connect an external source that already hosts your podcasts like Anchor, Ausha, Simplecast, or Spreaker.

Reach the largest number of people

Broadcast your masses, worship services and functions live

Live Video and Audio

With our Live features, you can offer your followers the opportunity to follow all your interventions live from their phones. Whether it's simple audio or video, Live allows you to reach a very large audience, attract new members and keep your followers engaged, who can follow you without necessarily being nearby. You can schedule your live broadcasts, and only give access to them at the right time.

Collect donations

A simple and effective way to raise funds

Donately

Link your Donately account to your app and use it as a donation collection tool. Installing the Donately extension will be quick and easy and you will be able to manage your donations from your Donately account. You will be able to integrate donation forms and collection pages into your app for an even better donation experience.

Why is an app useful for religious communities?

Faith and technology

Technology has always played an essential role in helping religious communities share their message. After the age of print, it is now time to fully embrace the digital age. This evolution will also allow you to continue to engage a young and active community that no longer envisions their daily lives without technology. All studies show that although we have access to more information, our attention span has never been shorter. This is a good reason to offer a communication format that corresponds to our way of life.

A tool to practice your faith

Holy readings, prayer times, meditation, devotions, confessions... Many religious practices can be facilitated and encouraged with an app. Holy texts can be made available, prayers can be reminded by notifications, masses and celebrations can be followed live and remotely. No matter what happens in the world, with your app your followers will always have a link to your community and will be able to continue their religious experience with you.

An app to collect revenue

An app can be a great way to raise funds for your faith community. Whether it's by charging for your app, monetizing content within your app, integrating advertising, or linking it with Donately, a fundraising service. An app gives you the ability to choose the revenue streams that work best for you.
