Simple administration

Whether service groups, small groups, senior groups, children’s clubs, seminars, courses, excursions, camps or whatever else happens in a group of people – with ChurchTools you can easily organize them all. Assign them to the appropriate groups, enter the leaders and thus give your church a supporting and lively structure – even across several locations with the multi-site function.

Efficient communication

Thanks to the group filter, you can communicate quickly, easily and precisely. Choose which group(s) you want to target and write to them via email or ChurchTools chat without having to rely on additional apps or algorithms. Allow people to sign up for events and groups by creating customized forms that you embed on your website. This allows you to even reach people outside your church.

Maintaining an overview as group leader

Who belongs to the group? When did everyone join? Who has registered, who hasn’t yet? With ChurchTools you have an overview of the groups assigned to you and can easily communicate with all participants without anyone being forgotten. Notifications and automated messages help and give you more time to take care of those who have not been there for a while. This way, no one is left out of sight.
