Globalpark provides path for Christian Research

New business UK

UK— Panel software firm Globalpark has been signed up by Christian Research to power its Faith Journey project.

Faith Journey is a community where Christians use blogs, bulletin boards and chat rooms to share their experiences of how they came to faith. Participants can also upload photos and videos to accompany their stories. The community has been funded by organisations including Alpha, the Salvation Army, Baptist Union and the Bible Society.

Christian Research will use the community to understand faith journeys “in real time”.

Benita Hewitt, director of Christian Research said: “Globalpark has enabled us to gain new insights into people’s innermost feelings and beliefs. Creating a feedback community has added real depth top our research; we are now able to connect respondents at multiple points in their journey and track their experiences over time.”
