We’re offering a FREE digital consultation for all prospective new clients.


So if you're a church looking to enhance your online presence, you’ve come to the right place.


Why Managing Church Events Online is Vital


In today’s digital age, the phrase 'if you're not online, you don't exist' rings truer than ever, even for churches. With social distancing still a consideration and the convenience of digital solutions increasingly recognised, many churchgoers appreciate the option to engage online.

Managing church events online isn't merely about keeping up with the times; it’s about reaching out to your community effectively and inclusively. It allows for a wider audience, ensures better organisation, and helps keep your congregation engaged.

What does Effective Management Look Like?

Effectiveness comes in three flavours when it comes to managing church events online: accessibility, engagement, and analytics.




Website Calendars: If you're a church without a website, creating one should be your first step. Your website can host an interactive calendar that updates in real-time.


Online Bookings: Enable your congregation to book their tickets for events or special services online. A booking system reduces administrative burden and enhances the experience for your churchgoers.




Virtual Events: Live stream sermons, study groups, and workshops. High-quality, reliable streaming can make virtual attendees feel as if they're right there with you.


Interactive Elements: Include Q&A sessions, live polls, and chat functions to your live events, services or streams to keep the audience engaged.




Track Participation: Use analytics tools to measure attendance, engagement levels, and even the success of fundraising efforts.


Feedback Loops: After each event, offer quick online surveys to all attendees to gather feedback. This can guide improvements for future events.



Tools you need

Website Platforms: Consider platforms that are user-friendly and can be easily updated, like WordPress or Wix. For more tailored solutions, a company like Gemstone offers fantastic website development services in Hertfordshire and beyond.


Streaming Services: YouTube and Facebook Live are good places to start.


Booking Software: You may already be signed up to a dedicated church management software solution that includes booking systems, and we at Intent are happy to integrate these, or our tailored booking system (which is free for all clients) into all our clients websites and apps.
