For several decades in the 20th century, the Christian Home Committee of the National Christian Council of India was devoted to strengthening the Christian ideas of family life among believers on the subcontinent. Beginning probably in the early 1940s and influenced by a similar program in China, the committee sponsored an annual, week long Christian Home Festival. It also distributed literature that families could use for daily worship and Bible study together. The festival was intended not only to show families how to have devotions together, but to encourage them to play together, jointly plan their lives around Christian principles, and find ways to serve the church and larger community.
