Methodism via your smartphone

News just in

A brand new app from the Methodist Church in Britain is now available on all mobile devices. The app offers users a daily Bible study, as well as all the latest news, audio and video from the Church.

Features include:

  • Daily Bible studies, featuring a different author each week
  • The latest news stories from the Methodist Church in Britain
  • Topical podcasts from Methodist Web Radio
  • Resources for Christian discipleship
  • Blogs from the President and Vice President of the Methodist Conference, Methodist Youth President and World Church Relationships team
  • View videos through the Church’s YouTube channel
  • Interact on Facebook and Twitter
  • Information about the latest campaigns and the Church’s involvement in the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games

“With the rise of the smartphone, we’re more connected than ever before, and that’s something to celebrate,” said David Webster, the Church’s Internet Communications Coordinator. “We want people to be able to make use of our resources across a wide range of platforms. Our goal is to support Methodists and other Christians as we make our way as disciples of Jesus in the modern world.”

For any current device, including Blackerry phones, the app can be downloaded for free through a web browser here. It’s also available free through the App Store and Google Play (for Android devices).

This is a brand new app, not an update of the original Methodist app (launched in May 2010). Users of the original app will need to delete it and install the new one to enjoy all the features available.

Do you mean Kim on Facebook?
Will we be able to access ‘personal’ details - I guess when one is online that’s the go.

No need to plan a meal. Unless infernal cooling is a knock-on effect of global warming.
