Millions of people will use A Church Near You this December. Help them to find you by adding your services and tagging them.
From the beginning of Advent, your church’s homepage on A Church Near You will highlight your Advent Christmas services and events, making it easy for visitors to find yours. Any one-off services and events on the 24 and 25 December will be highlighted, plus any one-off events that are tagged with a Christmas themed tag. These include:
- Christmas Eve
- Christmas carols
- At the Heart of Christmas
- Mince pies
- Mulled wine
Adding an event tag is simple:
- As an A Church Near You editor go to your church page on the site
- In the left hand menu click on Services and events
- To add tags to an event, click on the pencil beside the event
- Scroll down to Tags and use the search box to type Christmas to find relevant Christmas related tags
- Tick all the tags that are relevant to the event
- Click Add / Edit tags to apply
- Click Save at the bottom of the page.
Remember, if you're offering online services, you can also use the tags to promote this, such as 'live stream' or 'prerecorded service'.
