If you are the editor of multiple churches in a Benefice, you can edit a homepage for these churches, with a friendly name of the Benefice, cover image and welcome message.
This will have tiles to link visitors to all the churches in your Benefice.
To edit your Benefice homepage log into your AChurchNearYou account
Click on 'My Churches and Benefices' which you'll find in the top right hand corner
Click on the name of the Benefice to edit.
Every editor will see this link, but only editors of churches in a Benefice can edit this.
If you can't see your Benefice Homepage in your My Churches and My Benefices page then it's likely that you're not yet an approved editor for all the churches in the Benefice. You can request to edit further churches by following Step One and Step Three of this guide: https://achurchnearyou.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360002398413

You'll your Benefice's URL by going to My Churches and Benefices (top right of your screen) and clicking on the name of your Benefice (just as you would to edit it).

You can then use this URL either on your church's About page on AChurchNearYou (https://achurchnearyou.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360002441174) or on your own website and social media profiles, or if your Benefice has a domain name, and you want this domain name to point to your AChurchNearYou Benefice homepage, just follow the instructions here: https://www.achurchnearyou.com/custom-domain
