How to Make a Good Contributions Project

Many of those involved in the church have fantastic ideas about what events to throw, how to get more people involved and the best ways to make your church building an inviting place to be. Unfortunately, many of those ideas cost money. On top of the bills, wages and necessary maintenance costs… how can you ever find the funds to explore these?

Meet Father Jeffrey Risbridger: We raised the money well within the set timeframe by using ChurchDesk

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.

Go Digital (or face stagnation)

Many of us remember putting our coins on the collection plate as it was passed around at church service. But people have been predicting the end of cash for more than 60 years and now, in 2016, that is starting to look real. With more than 50% of all payments in the UK being made by card or online, and with 40% of Brits believing they won't use cash 10 years from now, the church must find an alternative way to collect donations. This is why digital payments, and ChurchDesk’s Contributions, are so important.
