Hundreds of thousands of church members rely on My ChurchSuite to stay connected to their churches. My ChurchSuite can make a huge difference to your church:
As a church member, it can be incredibly useful being able to:
access your serving rotas
contact other members of your small group
sign up to events or
listen to your church's podcast
or any of the range of other things you can do!
Leaders in your church will appreciate being able to
add small group attendance, or
have an overview of serving rotas.
And your church office will love the fact that your members are able to keep their own details up to date!
Today, we're thrilled to announce a major refresh of the My ChurchSuite user interface, along with some new functionality we've been able to add. We've dedicated significant development time to this and hope you're going to love it!
Fresh new look and feel
We've upgraded the user interface and introduced a fresh, clean, friendly, uncluttered look that invites the user to engage. As you use My ChurchSuite you'll find that things feel more natural and obvious. This has implications beyond mere aesthetics: the relaxed, simple feel helps new users, or church members who may not be as comfortable with technology, to engage. It feels easier to use and it is easier to use!
Not only does My ChurchSuite look better, but we've also ensured that accessibility was front and centre in this redesign. We're aiming to make this as easy to use as possible for as many people as possible - we'd love every church member to be using My ChurchSuite!
To that end, we've ensured that across the entire interface, text is now easier to read: it is generally larger, and we've ensured that all text is presented in such a way so as to make reading much easier on the eyes.
In addition, we've had a particular focus on the experience on mobile phones. While My ChurchSuite works well on any device, the overwhelming majority of people use it on their phones. This is why we designed the interface in a way that makes actions and pop ups both more easily reachable as well as easier to use on mobile phones. One-handed use is now much more feasible, even on larger screen phones.
We were able to add some new features as well. One handy new feature is the ability of ministry overseers in the Rotas module to manage ministries through My ChurchSuite that don't have a rota. Previously the Teams page could only be accessed if there was a draft or published rota. This constraint has been removed and ministries without rotas are now listed, which means overseers can manage their ministry teams even if there's not a rota active.
Another new feature that we hope people will find useful is that the featured events widget at the top of the "Home" page and My Events page in My ChurchSuite has been reworked. While it previously showed the next three featured events, we've now turned it into a scrollable reel that highlights the next six weeks of featured events, all in a neat, left/right scrollable view.
Overall, we're pretty excited about the changes and very much hope you and your church members are going to find My ChurchSuite even more helpful, engaging, and a joy to use!
