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.

Sorry. We didn’t mean to mislead you.

We have been accused of purposely misleading people into thinking we had a working relationship with specific people at a diocese.

[Infographic] How a church went from 0 to 600 contacts

Churches work hard to collect data on their members and others who visit the church in order to communicate with them digitally via e-mail newsletters and other online channels. Hence, we have asked a ChurchDesk customer to share the four key points they used to go from 0 to 600 contacts. Take a look at their advice in the infographic below.

Must churches survive at the detriment of religion?

The church can sustain itself – but is it sacrificing religion to do this?

The United Kingdom’s biggest and most beautiful buildings are its churches. But they are also its emptiest. Recent church reports indicate more than a quarter of churches have fewer than 20 worshippers on a Sunday, and in rural areas this slips to fewer than 10. Left alone, these buildings may slowly start to shut, and then rot. To avoid this we need a communal solution.
