    A Church Near You

    It's here! The brand new website A Church Near You that is an important tool for anyone looking for a church service. The site receives 13 million hits a year and has been given a makeover to make it easier to use, mobile friendly and with the addition of some great new features. 

    Check out the site a www.achurchnearyou.com and ensure that you enter your service details so people can find you, especially during Advent and Christmas.

    How can I update my page?

    1. Ensure the information listed about your church is correct by finding your page and logging in. Your existing username and password will work but if you have forgotten it you can reset here.

      Check the data for any mistakes and if you spot anything wrong with the data that you can’t edit, you can report an issue by going to More information and clicking the ‘Report an issue’ button.
    2. Add your Advent and Christmas services and events – or update yours if you have already done so with the new tags. Many churches have already updated their calendar to include the Advent and Christmas services, but if you’re yet to add yours, you can do so now by following these instructions. You can also add events that take place in different locations.
    3. Check your profile picture and cover photo. The profile picture you supplied for your church on the old ACNY has been moved over. A new feature that has just launched is the option to upload a cover picture. This is the perfect place to feature photos of your congregation – perhaps an image showing the inside of your church during a busy service, or group photo.

    Remember, your existing log in details have been carried over to the new website.

    How do I raise support issues?

    If you have a question, please go to the FAQs page and follow the instructions.
