What is AppSTER?

What are we doing and what are we aiming for?

Our team has been involved for many years in supplying Chinese Christians with a good and comprehensive set of Christian material through printing books and Bibles.

We are now producing and distributing 32GB micro SD cards to Christians around China. As we are continually acquiring more material to use, we are hoping that one day we can add more material and have to use even larger Micro SD cards to provide believers with even more invaluable Christian material.

We are aiming to produce at least One Million copies of AppSTER cards containing this comprehensive set of Christian materials and distribute them to the Church and believers around mainland China by the end of 2025.

Christians are under increasing pressure in China. Many are retreating “underground” and need access to Christian material that is safe and secure.  This secure and dedicated smartphone app is optimised in that it uses and displays the data it contains. All the resources are available offline without the need for internet or data connections.
