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.

How to Make Tech Work for Your Seniors

Technology is a great tool for spreading your message and engaging a younger audience in the church, but it shouldn’t be used in such a manner that it shuts out your senior parish members.

What is Data? Why should you care?

At ChurchDesk we often promote the collection and use of data, and encourage our users to incorporate it into all aspects of their church. But we sometimes hear that churches feel this is not necessary - merely a nicety if they find the time, or even a distraction from the core mission of the church. Some even feel this is an invasion of their congregation’s privacy. We believe this is a misunderstanding of the function data plays. So what really is “data”, and why should your church care about it?

New year, new opportunities

After the festivities of Christmas, we enter a new calendar year. We welcome the new year as a fresh start, in the hope that it will bring additional opportunities and projects. Some people (and even organisations) make firm goals, in the form of resolutions, whereas others take things day by day; either way, it is good to think about what you want to achieve in the next 12 months. At ChurchDesk we’ve thought about how to do this, and come up with some top tips...

How to make your church volunteer-friendly

It’s Christmas! One of the best and busiest times of the year for any church, where your calendar is brimming with events and your workload is trebled. It’s great that so many people engage with the church over this period, but you’ll need to make sure you have a clear and effective volunteer strategy to make the most of this.

So how do you make sure your church is as volunteer-friendly as possible? Here are 5 points we think are crucial.

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. 

Are you ready for your PCC meeting?

The relationship between our sales team and our clients is a very close one. Many times you understood and you are now certain that YOU want ChurchDesk for your church. There is one small hurdle remaining... the PCC or parochial church council needs to give their stamp of approval. The problem here, that nearly always arises, is that Phil, Arran or any of our other dedicated team can not be there when you present your case for ChurchDesk. As a result of this we have received numerous requests asking for assistance. I have decided to put together this article to help you answer all the most frequently asked questions at the PCC.
