Anglican Church to launch Facebook service for youths
The move according to the leadership of the church, is meant to address the diminishing numbers of young people attending church service on Sunday.
Head of the ACK church, Archbishop Jackson Ole Sapit has said that the church will from next year start training its priests on how to use social media ahead of the launch of the online service and asked fellow clergymen to be ready to embrace the change that comes with social media.
“Young people in our congregations have the latest gadgets and are not attending church services and the best way to bring them back is by introducing online church services as they are always on social media,” said Archbishop Sapit.
He said that the world is becoming a global village by the day and it is high time those in the leadership of the church move towards the side of technology and have online church services.
Dr. Sapit warned that if the church does not take this opportunity of getting into the technology space, the church will be left behind and in the end there will be no one.
“We need to enter into this technological space and take our evangelism message there where majority of the young members are found,” he said.
