The Table Project is not about global connection, we're about local engagement.
But now that local engagement can happen globally: The Table is now available worldwide.
When we launched publicly in 2011 the Table was only available in the United States. We've made some tweaks and cleared some technical hurdles and now churches anywhere in the world can use the Table (assuming they have Internet access and what not).
Check out the Table and sign up your church today.
Note: We want to be clear that while we are making the Table available internationally for the global church, it is not optimized for local use. It's only in English, it's not localized and since we're based in the United States and follow U.S. laws, we may not comply with local privacy or other laws.
In the future we do hope to offer a localized version of the Table that's multilingual and fully global (if you'd like to help with that effort, you can sign up here). But for now the best we can do is at least make the Table available. Also, since we are a nonprofit and make the Table available for free, donations are always appreciated.
Those caveats aside, we're excited to offer the Table globally. We hope you're ready to slay anonymity, champion prayer and squash apathy. Around the world.
Update: The Table is now available internationally.
Since we launched the Table last year it's only been available in the United States. That's going to change.
We announced last fall that we were working on an initial international solution for the Table. We were hoping to roll it out by the end of the first quarter 2012. We've been getting near daily comments and questions about our international roll out and it's an important priority for us. We're eager to share the gift of the Table with the worldwide church.
With so many people clamoring for the international release, we wanted to give an update and keep everyone informed. We are started on the development needed to make this happen (there are some significant changes that need to be made, including making the address and mapping functionality global), but unfortunately it doesn't look like we'll make the end of the quarter deadline.
While the international roll out won't happen by March 31, we do hope to have it out as soon as we possibly can. As you can imagine, we're reluctant to give another estimated launch date. Unexpected things always seem to come up and that's a good way to frustrate people (you guys as well as us!).
We should also be clear that while we're making the Table available internationally our efforts will continue to focus on the U.S. Churches outside the U.S. will be using the Table as is without any language or cultural localization. We realize that's not ideal, but it's the best solution we can offer at this time. We hope everyone can understand our limited resources, especially considering that the Table is a free gift.
Down the road we do hope to accommodate multiple languages and local customization and you can sign up to help with that effort if you're interested.
Update: The Table is now available internationally.
To all the eager folks outside the U.S. hoping for a place at the Table, we're sorry to say that the Table is not currently available internationally.
We're blown away by the interest and look forward to the day when we can invite everyone around the world to the Table.
We know that's a bummer to the many non-U.S. churches who wanted to sign up. Unfortunately, there are several technical, legal and insurance hurdles we need to overcome to make that happen. We hope to be able to resolve those issues later this year and begin to make the Table available at no cost to countries around the world. Of course, we have to prioritize our efforts, and right now we're focused on improving the Table in the U.S.
But we will get there and hope you'll be patient with us. One step at a time.
We'll Let You Know
If you'd like to help us out, fill out this quick form and we can track demand by country and reach out to you in the future when we prepare to launch outside the U.S.
Thanks for your understanding.
