Testimonials

Don't just take it from us. this is what our customers have to say...
They talk the language of the normal person

“ChurchInsight have worked with the Baptist Union to create a whole new branding and Website. Despite a complex set of requirements and the need for a radical rebrand, ChurchInsight have been superb to work with, delivered on time, on budget.

ChurchInsight have imparted great expertise and advise, yet unusually for technical companies, they talk the language of the normal person. They take a mad idea, and make it happen. I am sure that there has been a lot of head scratching behind the scenes, but we have never experienced that.

The company is totally professional and over the time of this project we have made some good friends. The churches of the Baptist Union have overwhelmingly welcomed the new branding and website. I cannot recommend ChurchInsight highly enough. We feel that we are in safe hands.”

A completely positive experience

“From the first phone call of general enquiry until the moment we went live with our new website, our whole experience with ChurchInsight has been a completely positive experience. Initially I was surprised by the amount of time and attention I was receiving at such an early phase of exploration regarding what would be possible. However, in the last couple of months since then I have come to realise that this is how the company operates all the time.

Every person we have dealt with has been truly helpful, interested in what we are trying to achieve and genuinely concerned that we get what we want out of our site. The instruction videos supplied are clear, concise and so simple to access that our whole staff are easily acquiring the skills necessary to update the site and utilise it to the full.

Although we are still learning and finding our way in tailoring the new website to our unique needs as a church, it is also completely reassuring to know that help is only a phone call away through the excellent support team.

I am so pleased that ChurchInsight were recommended to us, and would wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone else considering a new website for their church or ministry.else considering a new website for their church or ministry.”

Incredibly helpful tool

“Churchinsight has been an incredibly helpful tool for our ministry here at ECF Paisley. This is an organisation which understands the media and management needs of churches of all sizes. 

Our website is clean, professional and easy to edit. The graphics team at ChurchInsight are also second to none. They have worked alongside us several times, delivering high quality graphics and design work. Gone are the days of cheap, grainy and outright nasty homemade flyers.
On top of that, we have absolutely loved using the management side of Web Office. We use this to store our entire church database which is really easy to edit and keep up to date. 

As a busy church, we have automated reminders for those in ministry teams when they are due to serve. This saves ministry team leaders an incredible amount of time and hassle on a weekly basis.

If you are a Pastor looking to improve the media and management of your church - then this is for you.”

I could not recommend ChurchInsight more highly

“I have introduced ChurchInsight in two churches now and just couldn't envisage life as a senior pastor without it. Having a modern website is now a prerequisite for a church that seeks to grow.

We have many members here who only came because of the website and being able to check-out the teaching by listening to talks on-line.
 
A ChurchInsight website is like an iceberg – what you see is just the tip. I spend most of my time in the ‘web office’ (database) using the powerful contact manager to send emails to various groups and to check that rotas and events are scheduled correctly. The whole staff team collaborates in keeping their own areas up to date.

The ChurchInsight team are incredibly helpful and technical support is pretty much instant – we have never ever been left waiting for help. There are great on-line training courses and as the system is so intuitive and easy to learn I have myself trained many users in the space of an hour to do most of the basic tasks.  

The system is scalable so you only need pay for what you use and it can grow with you, something few others offer.  I could not recommend ChurchInsight more highly as a really effective website and database provider.”

I wholeheartedly recommend ChurchInsight

“As a leader of a smaller church on a very tight budget, I was unsure whether our project would interest the team at ChurchInsight. I was delighted to discover that not only were they interested but they relished the opportunity to transform our image with a fresh new logo and modern website.

I've been particularly impressed by the speed at which ideas were visualised, and by their simplification of what I feared would be a long and complicated process. I would wholeheartedly recommend ChurchInsight to all churches, regardless of size.”

Great work and sincerely appreciated!

“As a small Medical Mission operating in a remote, politically volatile and little understood area of Nigeria getting across what we do, why, and how is a challenge.

We had tried free blog sites and home grown websites but they all lacked impact and clarity in conveying our mission. Stepping back and letting professionals present the work is the way forward, but crucially, only if they can do so with accuracy and correct emphasis.

At ChurchInsight, Adam and Craig took considerable effort and time just talking and asking questions to really get to the nub of what we do and how we wanted to present ourselves. 

The end result has been flawless and the ability to use the web office easy and intuitive to use. Crucially they highlighted areas we had not thought of and a design and style that visually added to the content to give a rounder fuller picture of the work, great work and sincerely appreciated!”

The only solution I recommend

“After five years using ChurchInsight for our church website, database, sermon archive, event management system, rotas, on-line booking and mailing system, it is still the only solution I recommend when other churches ask for advice.

Of all the systems that we looked at, none came close to the integrated power of ChurchInsight to make administrating a church and website as straightforward and low maintenance as possible - and they still seem to be well ahead of the competition!

While the component system parts themselves may not be the best-in-breed compared to dedicated systems, the cost and complexity of integrating or maintaining disparate dedicated systems is something you can wave good-bye to with ChurchInsight - and enjoy a whole host of additional features as a direct benefit of the full integration.

All backed-up by a great team who are good at balancing the needs of individual customers with improvements to the system as a whole.”

I don't know what I would do without it!

“I love ChurchInsight because it’s the best tool for church administration and communication... From the database, to events, rotas, mailings, resource booking - plus the external website - now I've got used to using it I don't know what I would do without it!”

ChurchInsight have been incredibly helpful

“ChurchInsight have been incredibly helpful from the start to where we are now with our live site. They have given constant feedback whilst we were setting up the site and helped even the almost computer illiterate among our team with creating a powerful and beautiful site. The experience of dealing with ChurchInsight has been completely pain free and they make it easy to create a site”

Very happy with our website

“Ruthin Christian Fellowship are delighted with the website provided by Churchinsight. We are a rural church in the middle of the North Wales countryside, and it is has been important for us to know that we have an effective tool for reaching out and making us known. We don't own a building, we don't have a shop front; but we do have a great website... I would also like to commend the technical support team at Churchinsight, I have never had to wait long for a response. They have always helped us to work through any problems or ideas that we have had in a patient and helpful manner. We are very happy with this our website, keep up the great work!”

A fantastic tool

“We’ve found the ChurchInsight system to be a fantastic tool in doing the work of ministry at Magdalen Road Church. Whether it’s as a front-door for people looking to find out more, a tool to help us organise and maintain teams or a place to provide resources such as sermons or home group notes, the beauty of ChurchInsight is that it gives non-experts the ability to maintain and design a good looking website that adapts to the needs of an increasingly complex church. And when we’ve needed them, the team have always been incredibly helpful to problem-solve or give advice. It’s a great cost-effective package”

There is a vast amount of features available in the ChurchInsight system

“We have been using ChurchInsight as our web host for a number of years now. Since using it we have found that our rota planning, management and member interaction and connection has vastly improved. We have a number of users accessing the site at different admin levels. We are able to have regular users, rota managers, blog attributers, media controllers, who upload the sermon recordings, equipment organisers and overarching administrators. I have found that there is a vast amount of features available in the ChurchInsight system, some of them I have not even explored yet. The help functions on the website are great but if the answers are not there the support staff are never far away. I have had some very odd requests that have always been answered in a timely manner usually with great instructions on how to achieve what I desire. I wanted to set up a log of equipment that could be requested and loaned out to members, I was instructed how to do this and I was able to implement it quickly. I also wanted to have different sermon thumbnails on the front page to the sermon archive page, this was investigated and simple instructions were provided to assist me in the implementation of this request. I have had many other small changes that the support guys have just logged on and sorted for me. I have to say I have never been let down by the support offered by the ChurchInsight team. I have and will continue to speak highly of and recommend the ChurchInsight website options to other churches I come into contact with”

A great product and a must have for a busy growing church

“A great product and a must have for a busy growing church. I have used Churchinsight for over 11 years now at two large churches, and have helped introduce the system to many more. Over the years, ChurchInsight has proved to be the only comprehensive solution for website content, membership communication, database management and back office administration. Technically the system works very well with quick and reliable servers, intuitive features and significant storage, but far more important than these plus points is the ethos of the company and the helpful attitude of the team. It is clear that this is a product made for church by people who understand church requirements. Technical support has always been full, thorough and quick to respond. The development team listen to customer feedback and implement requests, meaning that most updates contain well thought through enhancements which actually make our job on the staff team easier. With the recent introduction of responsive templates that work well with mobile devices the front facing website has more potential than ever to serve the needs of your church and attract visitors. We use the system for rotas, mass emails, calendars, booking resources, congregational records and so much more. A great product and a must have for a busy growing church.”

I do enjoy using it and already got another local church to take it on too!

“I love things that look good and work well and this website does both. Having seen the ChurchInsight website work well in two other larger churches I was part of we quickly adopted it in our smaller church. I love that it grows with the church and is changing needs. While we choose the newly developed and most expensive template because it looked so good! However it was the administration side, Web Office, that really attracted us to adopt the system. A growing church requires a web based flexible administration system that will adapt with us and it is doing that every effectively. The site has transformed the way we function as a church in terms of rotas, reminders, the diary, address book and communication. Having lots of people inputting onto the site which can be controlled and limited where necessary has been such a benefit. One of our wardens commented that no one forgets duties anymore. Lastly I do enjoy using it and already got another local church to take it on too! ”

Easy to use, neat, professional and organised

“In the past churches I've been a part of, the website has always been an important part of communicating to, and organising the life of the church but sometimes it can get complicated. However, with Churchinsight and particularly the 'Web Office' database system it has made searching for names, organising events and storing information easier. With the three levels of website access (public access, member access and deeper leadership access) it means that you can keep more private information hidden and confidential so it means that staff, for example, have access to information stored on the website which other members don't need to wade through to find what they want. ChurchInsight means you can upload sermons, study notes, videos, and other useful resources which can then be made available for everyone to access. Anyone who has access to this part can do it, so you don't have to always go through the one person. Storing lists of ministries and their team members in web office means that you can search and find who is available for a particular event or you can check the calendar to see if you're not double booking something that is going on in your building; all information stored in the one place. Its all easy to use, neat, professional and organised. ”

We LOVE our ChurchInsight website

“Here at Christ Central Church we LOVE our ChurchInsight website. Having the combination of a great looking site and an effective church management system is simply invaluable. It’s become not only a great place for new people to find out more about us, but an integral tool in the every day administration of church life. The smartly designed "web office” is incredibly user friendly, but if you do ever need help there’s a wealth of resources available through the ‘help’ pages and a superb customer support team, ready to assist with any query. Throw in regular updates and new features and you've got a superb package that I’d recommend to any church, any where! ”

Offers such amazing value for money

“Holy Trinity Church, Old Hill has been working with ChurchInsight for a number of years now and has been more than satisfied with the service received during that time. We are a busy church with lots going on, so we value having a web site that pretty much “looks after itself” with only routine updating needed from us. We love that, behind the scenes, the site is always being improved and we receive regular updates to keep us informed of the upgrades made and how we can use the site to make our witness even better. It is obvious ChurchInsight treat user feedback seriously and will use this to make changes and improvements to make our lives easier. Like so many other churches, we work on a tight budget, so it is great that the package we have offers such amazing value for money. And when we approached ChurchInsight to help us personalise our pages a couple of years ago, they were so accommodating, making just the change we wanted very quickly and at a brilliant price. We love our web site! I would have no hesitation in recommending ChurchInsight to any organisation. ”

Extremely impressed with helpfulness of the ChurchInsight team

“I have always been extremely impressed with helpfulness of the ChurchInsight team. The comment 'no question is too silly' comes to mind as I came to grips with the workings of the website. I was and still am very grateful to the very quick and good responses to all my questions. As to the website itself it is clear concise and 'friendly'. ”

Extremely pleased with our new web-site

“I am extremely pleased with our new web-site. I found the guys who built it very skillful and extremely efficient. From first phone call to it becoming live was only a matter of weeks. Communication during the process was very good, they were very happy to tweak and adjust the site as the building process developed. Now we have a site that looks great, works very well for new visitors and church members alike. ”

ChurchInsight was the answer to all our needs

“St Gabriels Cricklewood is a vibrant contemporary church in North West London running multiple services each week, children's and youth work, a cafe, a CAP debt centre, English classes and more besides.

Quite a few years ago we wanted to upgrade our website and at the same time we needed better tools to manage church & group membership lists, a calendar of activities, rotas, and email communication to members and teams. All this was becoming harder to keep on track as we grew. ChurchInsight was the answer to all these needs. The project to get us going was very smooth. The website provides a constantly up-to-date picture of who we are and what we are doing, and the administration can be shared across staff and volunteers wherever they are.

Two years ago we decided we needed to 'freshen up' the look of the site. So we chose one of the new template websites available, put a few of our own graphics and colours onto it to reflect our branding and very quickly (and very smoothly and cheaply) we were up and running with what appeared to be a whole new site (but one that had all our existing information in and we all knew how to administer). We couldn't have done that as easily and cheaply any other way.

The ChurchInsight team really understand churches and how we work. So they cater for the fact that most of us have no technical expertise and take care of all of that for us. They even sort out the registration and ongoing fees for our website address. We just get on and run the church in line with our vision of going deeper with God, drawing closer to one another and going further for Him.”

The ChurchInsight tool set is so much more than a website

“The ChurchInsight tool set is so much more than a website. So, whilst we've been able to develop a fresh website using ChurchInsight, the database, calendar and range of additional features supporting our back-office admin functions are equally valuable. It is easy to give different people access to the specific tools and sections of the website that they need, thus ensuring that those who lead, organise or communicate about different ministries within the church are able to use the tools themselves without conflicting with other teams.

The Rota facility enables each team leader separately to organise the duties for their team, whilst automatically feeding into a single view of all contributors for a service or event. Using the database we can send regular mailings to selected groups of members and contacts which has helped to improve our communication. Because the website content on each page is maintained by those individuals who know what's going on this ensures the content remains fresh and up to date and avoids any bottleneck for making changes. The Calendar allows us to have all our activities in one place, accessible to those who need to see them, and the Resources tool provides the ability to manage the booking and use of different rooms and facilities.

For those who use the tools and make changes to the website, the Web Office is straightforward to use. But if ever we hit an issue or a question there is a useful knowledge base with lots of articles, hints and video clips to help. And on the rare occasion when we have needed to contact the Support Team, they have been excellent with their quick, accurate and helpful responses. We have been very pleased with ChurchInsight, the range of features, the team supporting us and the ongoing development of the product. ”

The Web Office is a powerful tool

“We had great support while getting our new website up and running. It was easy to communicate with the support team and we had all the help and advice we needed. The new Mission template is lovely, and it is easy to edit and add new pages. The Web Office is a powerful tool for administration and internal communication, and suitable for smaller or large churches. It is great to have such a professional site that is attractive to visitors looking to join the church.”

Fantastic and dynamic website

“We, Carlisle Christian Fellowship have now been a client of ChurchInsight for just over 3 years.

In November of 2013 we identified the need to freshen up our web site and so started the process of doing so. We considered different ways of achieving this, from designing and building our own, to looking at be-spoke options from other companies, but also discussing our intentions with ChurchInsight from the start.

They, ChurchInsight provided us with some off the shelf options and discussed both the positives and negative narratives associated with the different options.
Once we had looked at the different templates available we decided on a top 5 and carried out some market research to come to a conclusion and decide that the Expression 2 template was able to reflect and promote our Church in a real dynamic and modern way. It was also able to offer a greater user experience than other options we had looked at.

The conversion and handover experience was exceptional and painless and I cannot fault the support which we were given, and this has continued to be the case since we have taken ownership of the new site.

Feedback from users has been encouraging and very positive.
Thanks to the support from ChurchInsight throughout the process, I believe we now have a fantastic and dynamic website which will serve us well  as a Church.”

Modern, responsive website

“We’re really happy with our modern new website thanks to ChurchInsight Lite. The team have been really helpful in tweaking one of their clean templates to fit with our branding and requirements. This has given our website a complete overhaul – it’s gone from being dated and confusing to modern, sharp and easy to use. The video tutorials are excellent – allowing us to easily input information, upload content and make further tweaks as time goes on. The support team are great – their quick response times and helpful manner have ensured little bumps are ironed out and solutions are found in no time at all. Highly recommended!”
