ChurchApp now called Church Suite

A few weeks ago, ChurchAPP wrote to all of their customers to let them know that the iOS app was unavailable due to a trademark dispute that was brought by another company.   ChurchApp is now called Church Suite. ! Updated iOS and Android apps are available for download through the App Store and Play Store and we’ve got a new branding page on our website to help you access our logos for your website and publicity.

Each year some of the church family go to New Wine for a week of spending time with God and each other.  This year Petrina is overseeing the trip.  If you would like to know more email:

Team/Rotas on MyChurch Suite 

If you're on team or rota at St Mags then you will know that we have moved to a new system called MyChurchSuite.

We usually send out an email of any new rota and also print a copy for those at the 9am service. The email currently lists the whole rota, but if you access it via MyChurchSuite then you can see the dates and roles that you have been assigned. You can also add any dates your not available. (If you have not yet got access then please contact the church office)

You can access MyChurchSuite through any browser or even better by downloading the app to your phone/tablet. The first time you access the page you will need to state the church - StMags. Then in future, you need your email and password (set by you).


Once logged in, select Menu - My Rota and you will see the detail of what you are down for (if you're on a phone turn it sideways).


If you want to be really fancy you can also subscribe to the rota on ical (apple) or google and it will be added to you personal calender.

Updated: Can you hum a tune and click a screen? 

Then you could help!

Great news. We now have three people on the team, but we could still do with two more.  Chocolate bar for each additional person that joins the team - come on let's get to five.

If you're a bit musical (you know that songs have tunes and can hum a few) and can use a computer (just clicking with a mouse, or even
touching a screen) then you could be on the team.

Every Sunday the words for our worship are projected onto the screen so that we can all join in. We are looking for at least more 3 people to come and join AJ on this team (he is currently doing it most weeks).

We have done all the hard work of setting the systems up, so it is often just a question of loading the songs and clicking through the verses - preferably in time with the worship band.

Please contact Mark or talk to AJ on Sunday.
