WHO ARE THESE DAYS AIMED AT?
Anyone! Our aim is to make ChurchSuite and the concepts behind it accessible to anyone, whether you're a customer, mid-way through your trial or even just thinking about adopting ChurchSuite at your church. We'll be talking about best practices and how the whole system works together across the entire ecosystem. Even if you've been last year, this year's line up will have plenty of fresh content - plus all the benefits of networking, hearing ideas from other churches and access to the ChurchSuite team to ask your own particular questions!
Finance teams - please note that we provide specific "Finance Functionality" events covering the Giving module, event ticket sales and booking charges. These features are not covered at the regular regional training days.
I'M AN ADMINISTRATOR, SHOULD I COME?
Absolutely, the content that's covered and opportunity to discuss how you use ChurchSuite with other administrators on the day will be invaluable.
I'M A PASTOR, SHOULD I COME?
Absolutely - ChurchSuite's a system that benefits the entire church staff team. One of the training team was a pastor of a church of 200+ people - he'll be sharing from his experiences of how ChurchSuite supported growth in his church.
IF I BOOK BUT NEED TO CANCEL, WILL I BE REFUNDED?
Yes, we offer a full refund up to one week before the training day. Email a cancellation request to firstname.lastname@example.org
SHOULD I BRING MY LAPTOP?
Yes, the day is intended to be interactive. You'll enjoy the day more if you can participate, rather than just spectate! During the day we provide you with access to our ChurchSuite "training" account, plus you'll likely want to be logged in to your own ChurchSuite account. You'll likely find laptops easier than tablets (suggestion, not mandatory!) - tablets are great for looking things up, but it's usually quicker to enter information on a device with a keyboard - at times we'll move at quite a pace during the day!
WILL YOU HAVE ANY NEW FEATURES TO SEE?
Most definitely, yes! We've always got exciting new features that we'll be taking the wraps off!
