Church App

Testimonial from Deren Moodley, Head of IT at Rhema
"The Rhema App developed by Digital Peppa has made communication to our congregation much easier. It has taken us into a new phase of communication, and allowed us to reach our members no matter where they are and for them to keep in touch with events happening at our church. Digital Peppa, were very accommodating in making sure that the app was done the way we wanted it, inspite of all the changes that we keptrequesting. I would definitely recommend Digital Peppa to anyone looking to develop an App"

The problem with communication these days is that there are just too many ways to get the information out there which requires time and resource. uMoya was developed specifically to alleviate your communication and Media woes by creating a single platform to communicate through and publish media. With Mobile being the most utilized communication medium worldwide, it was the obvious platform to deliver our solution on.

We also believe that, although fewer people are attending church these days, they still need to be part of a community and feel close to their home church. uMoya is the answer as it becomes an extension of your church and allows congregation members to reach out and stay evolved and up to date. One should not look at technology as the enemy, but rather see how it can be used to bring even more souls to Christ. uMoya allows you to do exactly that!

Our Mission
