Pros: It just works so well, exactly as you'd imagine church management software would need to be. The customer service is excellent - always really helpful, taking on new ideas and giving prompt feedback

It's a good tool to keep every member of the church tagged and categorized.

Pros: Keeps everyone categorized, it's a good data base tool, it helps communicate with a groups and a good number of people at once.

Cons: The communication part is a bit complicated specially if you want to send an email to a big group of people, that should be more user friendly. It would be useful if it synced with other apps like mail chimp.

Overall: A good data base of church members, the tags are helpful to identify the areas people serve, etc.

by ChurchSuite on July 19, 2017

Thanks for your review Veralucia, I'm sorry that you find communicating to large groups complicated - it's simply a matter of going to that group and clicking the "Send email" button - nothing more to it than that! We've got an extensive support article (http://support.churchsuite.com/article/425-communicating-to-individuals-and-groups-through-churchsuite) that covers how to communicate well in a wide range of scenarios - it's really quite straight forward. You can even do the same from report results - just run the report and click "Send email". Also, it sounds as though you might have missed our MailChimp integration under the Administrator section (http://support.churchsuite.com/article/64-how-to-integrate-mailchimp) as it does exactly what you've mentioned.

Great software and support staff that respond within the hour every time.

Pros: Staff are responsive if we email or call. They have implemented features at our suggestions and requests. Much cheaper and intuitive than competitors.

Cons: Misses a (very) small amount of features that other companies offer. I want it to run every department in my church and it's not quite there yet.

Overall: Allows us to centrally manage our church.

This has revolutionised our church systems

Comments: Unsure which program to go for, we were recommended Church App and we haven't been disappointed. The software is great, well thought out and regularly updated and upgraded but the best thing about it is the support- they are fast, friendly and helpful and actually take on feedback to improve their service

Great for Everyone

Comments: Our church was using multiple spreadsheets and Word documents to keep track of members, small groups, events, volunteers, & child check-in... and now, with ChurchApp, all of it is in ONE place!!

We are so thankful for this resource, and for all the statistics/reports that you can generate to see trends and involvement at a glance. We are now able to communicate with our groups directly from ChurchApp, instead of copy & pasting email addresses into an outside email account. This saves so much time!

The customer support team is super friendly and helpful.

Since we are in California & ChurchApp is based in the UK, there have been a few things to get used to with wording, time zone fixes on the calendar, delay in communication due to time difference, etc, but I am confident that it will all get worked out :) The guys are persistent! The function of the ChurchApp is sooooo worth it!

ChurchApp is by far the best church management software I have used!

Comments: I have been using ChurchApp for a few months now but I am so impressed by the level of detail and flexibility that is in each module. The modules are extensive and the support team are extremely helpful!!

As a young independent church it helps us to adapt our growing systems as we go and the support team have been so willing to make modifications to facilitate our needs.The updates that have been released in the short time we have been using ChurchApp have been many and the plans that the team have for further development are exciting, extensive and innovative.

I highly recommend this software to any church, no matter what size you are or structure you have... ChurchApp will make your life so much easier!

Bringing everything under one roof has been great!

Comments: At one point we were entering information for folks in our congregation in up to four or five places. It was a logistical nightmare and we never knew which piece of information was the most recent, which used up hours of admin time.

With ChurchApp we are moving towards integrating all of that information and have found the process easy and effective for our ministry. ChurchApp is more than a storage place for information: it is a ministry tool that helps us know who is connected, and who isn't, and build pathways to help with that connection.

Being a North American Church the requirements for us are a bit different from a UK organization. The ChurchApp staff have been quick to adapt and provide us with the specific things we need as a North American organization.

ChurchApp is great, and getting better every day!

Comments: As our church has grown,we have tried managing that data in a variety of ways ranging from simple google docs to expensive software. Nothing has compared to ChurchApp.
We were given a month "to try it out" and we experienced very few issues. By contrast to the larger interfaces, everyone on our church staff found ChurchApp to be completely intuitive. Plus, when we did get confused, the customer service was phenomenal. From uploading our data for us, to adding features that we've requested, these guys bent over backwards to make this a useful tool for our church.
And it is SUCH a useful tool. The reports that it runs and the way that it presents data has been so helpful for us as we've decided things like where to start a new small group, evaluate whether or not to move to two worship services, and what Sunday morning classes we need to offer in order to enable us to better care for our children. It makes volunteer teams easy to manage. The fact that it integrates with a host of communication options (email, text, snail mail, etc) makes it that much easier to communicate with our entire congregation -- or better yet, specific parts of our congregation.
As an American church looking at utilizing a UK-based program, I was initially worried about getting lost in translation. However, the ChurchApp team took each of my concerns one by one and we were able to seamlessly "go live" with our congregation after our month trial with no issues whatsoever.
I feel like our church didn't just get an online database when we signed on. It feels more like we hired a team of employees to design a system specifically for our needs. ChurchApp serves tons of churches, but the ChurchApp staff never seem too busy to brainstorm with me on a way to optimize things to help us accomplish our ministry goals. Usually when we have submitted ideas / suggestions we've either gotten an email back in 5 minutes or less explaining how ChurchApp already does what we want it to do, or we've seen the team implement some sort of change in the next week or so to accommodate our needs. Nobody else is that flexible.
I recommend ChurchApp to any church without hesitation. It is by far the best system that we've seen. I'd encourage interested churches to at least take the time to do the 30 day trial. It's free, the ChurchApp staff does all the setup work for you, and in the long run you will save tons of time and energy.

A comprehensive, professional system and yet simple to use.

Comments: I've tried several systems in recent years, but what I like about ChurchApp is that each module is well thought through and works intuitively.

It was easy to set up and is simple to to use whilst being great value for money.

Another vital aspect is that it is constantly improving, updating and evolving. This gives me great confidence in the team who are always quick to answer my questions. The regular updates have reassured me that they are constantly investing in developing the product to make it bigger and better.

Moving to ChurchApp is the best thing we ever did.

Comments: Like so many churches we had multiple databases and information tucked away everywhere, moving to ChurchApp allowed us to have one comprehensive database. We moved many separate systems (including our child check-in) to one place.

ChurchApp are always open to suggestions to tweak the services they provide, they are always releasing new features that are so useful and often pure genius.

I am so glad we moved to ChurchApp, they are one of the few UK based systems, it works so well and has made us as a church more efficient, more connected and more professional.

Comments: Our information for members, rota's, databases and more were so fragmented between different programs, servers and files. Now we have everything for our church management in one system.

Easily changing events, details of your members or just following up on rota's is so much more simpler. That is for the church admin but also for the user and the attendees of your church. Get them to experiment with My ChurchApp and the see how nice it is to have all of their communication, serving and kids details in one place.

Get your church ready for the next level by sweetening up your processes!
