ChurchDesk is introducing a new calendar

In December 2019 we introduced our new calendar to churches and it's been very well received. Now we're switching all users to the new calendar with a lot of improvements. 

Invite people back into church after Christmas

Why not invite your Christmas visitors for an online church breakfast and ask them for ideas and support? We've collected some ideas for you!

Add sign-up forms directly to your events in ChurchDesk

If and when you’re able to host corona-safely events, it’s recommended that you ask people to sign up. Now you’re able to easily add a sign-up form directly to an event from within the ChurchDesk Calendar.

A better solution for people working in multiple parishes

At ChurchDesk we’re observing the everyday life of the church and have noticed how more and more churches have started sharing their human resources such as their organist, choir and even warden. ChurchDesk would like to help accommodate this new way of collaborating between parishes. That’s why we’re now providing you with a great solution to collaborate with your neighbouring parishes.

Coordinate staff and volunteers easily with the new absence calendar

We are always working to improve our already great calendar for you. Today, we are adding a new view for absences so your daily view becomes less cluttered.

QR codes are everywhere by now. We also have integrated these smartphone-readable links into ChurchDesk forms. Read on to learn how you can successfully use this tool in your church!

New website themes are now accessibility compliant

By 23 September 2020, The Government Digital Service (GDS) requires all websites in the public sector to be compliant with the WCAG 2.1 AA accessibility standards. ChurchDesk has made sure that you can comply with these if you also want your church's online presence to be more accessible.
