Are you thinking about ways to reach out to new members and engage your existing congregation?

Church Apple TV apps offer far more than just sermons. Read on and be inspired by these three churches that successfully use Apple TV apps and learn how easy it is to build your own Apple TV app with Tappla.

Three Examples Of Successful Church Apple TV Apps

1. Vineyard Churches

Vineyard Churches is a neo-charismatic evangelical Christian denomination with 120 churches across the UK and Ireland. The Vineyard Church App helps members feel connected even if they aren’t able to physically attend a service.

The app streams over 400 Vineyard films to their TV screens, allowing people to view them at a time of their choosing from the comfort of their own homes.

Popular features include complete conference talks from the National Leaders’ Conference; music videos from Vineyard Records UK with international hits from Great Big God, as well as the entire range of the Vineyard Insights films which are available on demand.

The Vineyard app is straightforward to use – you can browse through hundreds of high definition films via your TV remote, and enter the category or keyword if you are looking for something in particular.

Vineyard TV is astonishingly successful and has a very wide reach – people have tuned in 144 countries. Watch as part of a church prayer group, on your own or as part of your family time. All you need to do is to purchase an Apple TV device, then search for ‘Vineyard’ on the Apple TV App store.

2. The Mormon Channel

Mormon Channel is the premier media channel for Utah-based Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

The Apple TV channel offers relevant and inspiring content to bring joy and peace to viewers. Mormons are able to choose from religious music, scripture readings, talk radio streams, videos (including Mormon Messages), general conferences, and more which can all be easily shared and enjoyed with family and friends.

The Mormon Channel is a great application; the Scriptures are particularly popular as it’s possible to auto-scroll and follow the content at your own pace. The Mormon Channel has a wide following. Many love it as it makes it easier to build religion into their day to day lives. You can listen to it during the daily commute to work, for example.

3. T.D. Jakes Ministries

T.D. Jakes is one of the most influential and charismatic pastors in the USA and it’s unsurprising that his Apple TV app, T.D. Jakes Ministries, is hugely successful.

T.D. Jake Ministries is the official app for viewing sermons and content from The Potter’s House of Dallas, with personal messages, daily devotionals, podcasts and bible study classes. Accessibility is second to none with subtitles, scripture references and footnotes and more.

It’s a TV and mobile app that lets you stay connected to God wherever you are – and your church could have one too!
