A look back at the year 2021 with CEO Christian Steffensen

Time flies and another year has passed. It's been 10 years since I started ChurchDesk and a lot has changed. In this article, I'll tell you about how we're planning to evolve as a business and give you an insight into the key improvements we introduced in 2021.

Christmas in Covid-19 times: Service registrations with ChurchDesk

Even though we would of course have wished it differently, it looks like Christmas will be a little different again in 2021. That is why many churches are now asking themselves how to organise the services in the coming weeks.

Three Christmas wishes for the 3rd Advent

Today we are celebrating the third Advent, almost more than half of this time has already passed. What have you experienced during this time? With their wishes, Dr Jörg Dechert, chairman of one of the biggest evangelical media centres in Germany,  author Katharina Plehn-Martins and catholic theologian Andreas Büsch are our guests on the blog.

Three Christmas wishes for the 2nd Advent

And the second Sunday of Advent has already arrived. December has dawned and one can peek behind the first Advent calendar doors. Our guests on the second Advent that express their wishes for the church in the digital age are: Lilith Becker from the yeet-network, the head of church telephone counselling in Berlin Uwe Müller and the leader of the catholic office for missionary pastoral work Hubertus Schönemann. 

Three Christmas wishes for the Advent time

With Christmas approaching, we start an advent series on our blog. For this, we have asked various people in and around the German church about their wishes for the church in the digital age. Though you might not know the persons yet, their wishes are universally comprehensible and might give you new inspiration for your own church surrounded by digital possibilities and challenges.
