The administrational needs of the church are growing as our world changes, affecting the way we meet and interact.

We need to be able to track Safe Ministry of Children and Blue Card requirements, keep on top of pastoral care, manage our meeting and events … and this is just scraping the top of what needs to be done! Keeping this all in order can be a great burden and can be difficult for someone to take on when someone passes on the baton.

Some features offered by the UCare system include:

  • Pastoral care and small group management
  • Keeping in touch with your congregation through online services
  • Attendance tracking for live streams and pre-recorded services
  • Child safety, including maintenance of required records
  • Forms and surveys
  • Online stores and point of sale
  • Giving and finances
  • Dashboards and automation of admin tasks
  • Scheduling and reservations
  • Meeting privacy and security requirements

Normally, access to the full UCare platform starts at $269 per month. However, the Synod Office has negotiated an umbrella account for the platform with each congregation set up as an individual campus to pay a flat monthly fee of 15 cents per congregation member per month. This presents a fantastic saving for congregations.
