Many of those involved in the church have fantastic ideas about what events to throw, how to get more people involved and the best ways to make your church building an inviting place to be. Unfortunately, many of those ideas cost money. On top of the bills, wages and necessary maintenance costs… how can you ever find the funds to explore these?

After the festivities of Christmas, we enter a new calendar year. We welcome the new year as a fresh start, in the hope that it will bring additional opportunities and projects. Some people (and even organisations) make firm goals, in the form of resolutions, whereas others take things day by day; either way, it is good to think about what you want to achieve in the next 12 months. At ChurchDesk we’ve thought about how to do this, and come up with some top tips...

It’s Christmas! One of the best and busiest times of the year for any church, where your calendar is brimming with events and your workload is trebled. It’s great that so many people engage with the church over this period, but you’ll need to make sure you have a clear and effective volunteer strategy to make the most of this.

So how do you make sure your church is as volunteer-friendly as possible? Here are 5 points we think are crucial.

It’s been an exciting year for the church, and we have experienced church staff and parishioners embrace email communication like never before… and thus, 2016 has seen the rise of the email segmentation phenomenon! A marketing dream, segmentation claims to increase recipient engagement and make your emails more effective. But what is segmentation, and why should your church do it?

Today, we’re adding the possibility of coordinating tasks between staff and volunteers to our system. We believe we have to make it as easy as possible to get involved in the church and its work, and we hope our new feature goes some way to aiding this.

Customer Case: Raising money, lowering hassle

The world has gone digital, and so has our solution. We’re always looking for more ways to combine the church’s needs and the ways of the modern world, so we’ve set about researching where digital trends and the church’s offerings aren’t matching up. What have we found? More than 50% of all payments in the UK are being made by card or online, and that just 15% of donations to churches come from cash collections. The church needs an online donation solution which allowed their congregation to safely and regularly contribute to their church…. and so we launched Contributions!

Contributions is our fully integrated donations and payments application, which allows churches to collect money from ticket sales, room hire and various different donations. You can accept donations and payments from both your website, messages and via mobile. The data collected with Contributions also allows you to get valuable insights, making your future endeavours even more fruitful. There are no contracts with any third party payment processors; with ChurchDesk it is, as ever, your all-in-one solution.
