Engaging with a digital world

Received this today from Duncan Parker on behalf of Premier Christian Media and Endis.

Dear friends,

Earlier this year, iTunes passed the 10 billion song download mark. The 10 billionth song was “Guess Things Happen That Way” by Johnny Cash.

Every day YouTube serves 1 billion (yes billion) videos to users. In the USA, 82% of internet users view video online with 12.2 billion videos viewed per month. Unless you are catching up with a missed TV show, most of these will be short videos.

The average user in the USA watches 182 videos per month.The UK will not be far behind these trends.

We are in a digital world, an oral and visual generation.

And of course, this way of communicating opens up many possibilities for the Church – not just secular organisations.

Multimedia and your church

Premier Christian Media and Endis are keen to find out what your church or denomination is currently doing or planning regarding the use of multimedia.

This will help us improve our extensive technology and related services to help you engage more fully with this increasingly digital world. We’ve devised a short survey and it would be great if you could complete what you can!

The link to the survey is

Thank you in advance for helping us understand what you would like to be able to do.

Sincerely, Duncan Parker, Church Liaison.
