We’re delighted to let you know about some exciting new features – and to let you know about some others that are coming soon. All of them are optional and available free for you to use if you find them useful.
Don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
Dedicated safeguarding information box for church homepages (available now)
Optional, frees up your homepage intro text block to focus on welcome, while clearly highlighting your safeguarding information. Find out more.
Online Services Register (available now)
It's the digital equivalent of keeping a paper Services Register book, and it works in online mode and offline mode.
It automatically feeds data through to your Statistics for Mission return, saving churches time at the end of the year.
It will become a legal alternative to a paper Services Register book once approved by Synod in July 2023. In the meantime you can use it alongside a paper Services Register. Find out more.
