ChurchSuite is a great tool that we use as a church to help keep the church connected and informed. We use it to help manage:

  • Our church contact and address book

  • Calendar & events

  • Serving and ministry rotas

  • Small groups

  • Booking for events

  • Managing safety for children and youth events

Church members have access to MyChurchSuite, which allows you to view and update and control your personal details, sign up to events and groups, and follow any serving rotas you are part of.

The New Hope Church Centre was built in 2001 on the site of

St Paul's Church in Reading. The Centre was built to provide a resource to the local community as well as a home for a Church within the community.

The Centre was built by the New Hope Charitable Company, and is now leased by Greyfriars Church and run by New Hope Community Church.
