For just over a year now we've used an online database called Community Church Builder (CCB). To be honest it's a great tool, but we're only now, as part of our drive to get better, beginning to use it to its full potential to do things like:
- Provide an online directory for the church with people's names, addresses etc
- Support online kids check in on a Sunday
- Provide the mailing list of eReveal - our monthly dates newsletter
- Allow us to track new people in our community and help them find a Lifegroup, get involved in serving etc
- Keep track of all the serving rotas
- Provide online areas for creative and planning teams to chat, share documents etc
- Allow people to book rooms
- Allow people to book in to courses, events etc
- And much more!
We're currently trying hard to make CCB more accessible and useful for everyone. That will take us a while, but as part of that process we'd like to come up with a new name for CCB which means something to our community. A while ago we asked people to suggest names - we've taken the best of those and would now like you to vote on your favourite. You can find the voting form here - appropriately it's on CCB!
Thanks. I'll let you know the result in a weeks time.
