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.
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.
At ChurchDesk we are always keen to hear how our customers are doing, so we sat down with The Revd Gerry Sykes to talk about how he felt his churches, St Paul’s and St Michael’s Wakefield, were getting on.
Sue Clarke, the vicar at St Paul’s Furzedown, has sat down with ChurchDesk to tell us about her experience with the set-up process. St Paul’s is a small, Anglican church in South London. Approximately 70% of the congregation is Afro-Caribbean and they see an average attendance of 50 on a Sunday morning.
At ChurchDesk we strongly believe that every church deserves a great website and shouldn’t cost you an arm and a leg. With this in mind I went along to talk with Carl from Holy Trinity in Northwood. I wanted to find out what he thought of our website tool.
Alex Harttung from the Christian Church in Sønderborg, Denmark is one of our users who has started using the new ChurchDesk app.
