91% do not believe that video conferencing will replace face-to-face contact

A recent survey of event organisers has revealed that 92% of churches and Christian organisations say they have lost connection with some of their people because they were unable to meet face-to-face.

Together

Those surveyed told us that 98% of event organisers still plan to hold face-to-face conferences in the future.

Chief Executive, John Heasman; “There has never been a more important time to reconnect in person. Video conferencing helped us all through 2020 but it will never replace the closeness of community felt by going away for a weekend conference together. Our guests understand the value of residential events with 91% telling us they do not believe that video conferencing will replace face-to-face contact.

We’ve been serving the Christian community for over 100 years and we’re going to be here for the next generation of believers to enable their ministry to flourish. As one of our guests told us recently, ‘there is no substitute for togetherness’ ”.

Christian Conference Trust also found that 83% of those surveyed say that their ministry has become more difficult without face-to-face contact. 

The survey took place between 3rd Dec and 11th Dec 2020 and was completed by a total of 161 event organisers.
