Print a beautiful church directory

As many a church office will be able to confirm, getting the church directory ready for printing can be a huge ordeal. Whatever your procedure is, it may involve anything from mail merging (we have yet to find anyone who actually enjoys that torment) to manually checking the existing directory against the church directory to make sure everything is up to date. And that's just the beginning!

Formatting everything so that no address goes across the page; making sure there are no rogue design elements; collating it so it's ready to be printed as a booklet... and then finding the inevitable mistake after the print-run is all done!

At ChurchApp, we say - no more! And so we've come up with a process that is "a bit" simpler, and takes a few minutes rather than a few weeks:

3 Steps to Creating a Beautiful Church Directory

  1. First, you decide whether you want your whole Address Book in the directory, or just a sub-section (like your members, for instance).
  2. Then, after ticking a few boxes, (deciding whether you want to include the addresses, photos, etc.), you click "Generate PDF".
  3. Finally, you hit your browser's print button.

More info on this on our Support page on printing a Church Directory.

Yes, the ChurchApp church directory now includes photos!

Being able to include photos in the church directory really lifts it. This is something that many of our customer requested. We listened, and are really pleased to be able to announce that this work has been completed.

We hope you'll now find creating a church directory to be a joy.
