Iranians are amongst the highest users of the Internet in the non-western world. In a country of almost 80 million people that’s a huge opportunity we cannot afford to miss. As with television, there are considerable efforts by the government to restrict accessibility to sites outside of Iran, but where the people are hungry, they will find a way – and they do!
222 Ministries is providing thousands of Iranian Christians with free downloadable teaching materials in text, audio and video formats. Our Farsi Christian Resource Centre provides teaching and training resources for any aspect of Christian life, and through the Farsi Christian News Network (FCNN) we are publishing the latest news and developments, all from a Christian view point (FCNN is also available in English – check out the newsfeed at the right of this page).
222’s Internet ministry serves just about every aspect of our work, from Children’s ministry, to Bible college, to Freedom in Christ discipleship course. Our 13 websites serving different areas of ministry can all be accessed through our central portal farsinetwork.com, making it easier for our users to find the resources they need.
Farsi Christian News Network - FCNN is one of the most popular of 222’s websites, sharing the latest news related to Christianity and Iran.

Kanune Shadi, (Sunday School) aims to serve the children of the Iranian Church. It is packed with fun material such as videos and games, all aimed at teaching and building faith in our children. We place huge importance on raising our children with Godly principles, helping them understand from a young age that God wants a relationship with them as much as with their parents. As they don’t carry the same baggage of a former religion as some of their parents might do, our children are learning to follow Christ from an early age, as a new generation of the Iranian Church emerges.

The short films are ideal for social media and connecting with young people who want real, raw stories from people just like them.

222 Bible College. Many believers like to study theology in a more formal, academic setting, but they either can’t afford it or can’t do it anonymously.

"Thank you for your excellent website. I am interested in Christianity because of the research I’ve done and would love to know more. Can you please put me in touch with a house church? I’m afraid to share my thoughts with anybody because of the limitations in Iran and I can’t trust anybody. Please give me some instructions."
