Six ways ChurchDesk can make you an even better parish priest

Every parish priest wants to give their very best. But if you’re weighed down by admin, that can be challenging. Here’s how ChurchDesk’s church management solution makes a difference.

You say "Too old, too small". We say "Have a little faith".

At ChurchDesk we often hear churches commenting that they’re too old or too small to really benefit from a church management system. They mention that not enough of their congregation use computers, or that it’s difficult to set up; It’s too costly, and they wouldn’t save enough time on admin. We disagree, and want you to know why.

Why Invest in a Church Management System?

Church Management Systems have a plethora of built-in features, so the answer to this question can be unique to each individual church. However, there are common objectives that all churches work towards: growing the congregation by improving the way the church engages people and increasing the ability to give back to their community. Some specific features will be more beneficial to certain churches over others (better Calendar, Database, Website, Bookings, Communications, etc.), but all features are designed to collectively reach these overarching goals.

Capital investment, strengthened management and a new office in London

In the last few months ChurchDesk has experienced some major events and we would like to take this opportunity to tell you all about it. Firstly, over the summer, we obtained a substantial capital injection from an internationally recognized investment group. This investment came on the back of significant recognition of the product and the value we have created for our customers. As well as this we have made further investments into our team and have recently employed three new country managers with vast experience and ambitious profiles that will further enhance our local focus. Finally we are happy to announce our new office in the center of London. Our UK customer interests are continuing to grow and this office will serve to meet these demands now and in the future.

Is your church newsletter being read? Try these 10 tips

Think about the last newsletter you received in your inbox. Was it a newsletter you looked forward to or just another e-mail to add to the daily clutter in your inbox?

If it was clutter, then I would suggest that the information provided in the newsletter did not give you any value. So how do you give your newsletter value and avoid being added to the daily pile of junk? We have put together 10 ideas for you to help you create a great newsletter that gives value to your congregation.

Why the church needs to go mobile

We often hear that poor information flow and slow communication means that it is hard to do work in the church. It may be that the office is closed or that you are not near a computer. That makes it hard hard to see if a room is available or to send a group message! It basically puts a limit both activity and motivation when you cannot access the tools required to make your church work fun and easy.

Is your church ready for the new Google requirements to be mobile?

Google has big changes coming up in the way they prioritize their search results. April 21, 2015, Google changes significantly. The company just announced that a mobile friendly version will be an important parameter to be prioritized in the search results in the world's most popular search engine. From now on it will become key to support mobile versions for mobiles and smartphones - also for the church.

I want to talk to all our customers

I will jumb right into it! Last week I got a great idea and wrote out to 1,000 of our active users and asked if they could find 10-15 minutes of their time to talk to me.
