A ChurchDesk Guide: What does the GDPR mean for your church?

If your organisation handles the personal data of citizens, 25 May 2018 is a date that needs to be emblazoned on your mind. New regulation governing data protection comes into force putting far greater requirements on churches to manage, protect and dispose of citizens’ personal data in an appropriate manner. Here’s how the rules will affect your church. And how you can face the new regulations properly by using ChurchDesk.

Life events, new themes and better workflows

After a successfully completed GDPR roadmap we're now ready to share a sneak peak into the most important upcoming features and improvements. We're excited about the coming months and wish everyone a great summer!
