Calendars and Events

Calendars for the public, members, and leaders.

It’s easy to keep the public and your membership up-to-date with upcoming events. With the available iCAL feed, the public and your membership can subscribe to calendars using their desktop/mobile or web-based calendar application…merging the church calendar with their personal calendars.

For members, Congregate automatically creates events for member birthdays and anniversaries. All of your upcoming week’s events are automatically included in the optional weekly recap email, sent to members each week.

Church leaders can also utilize the leadership calendar, offering a private place for church leaders to plan their own events.

Control over events and display.

Congregate supports one-time and recurring events. Set up a recurring event to be daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly, or annually. Create blockout dates for periods where the recurring event will not be held without having to go in and modify its recurring settings. Duplicate and color-code events for easy creation and display on your website.

A user’s permissions determine if he or she can view any given calendar, including the private leadership calendar designed for church leaders.

Subscribe to your calendar via calendar applications like Apple’s iCloud Calendar, Google Calendar, or Outlook. Use the export to PDF option to save and print a full-page calendar for distribution or to display at your church.
