The Life Events Diary (LED) is custom-built online software with the potential to radically streamline administration for baptisms, weddings, banns and funerals, and helps churches build lasting relationships with new contacts through life events, boosting mission.
You can find the Life Events Diary at www.lifeeventsdiary.org
Every family that approaches a church for a wedding, banns, a baptism or a funeral will begin a journey with the people in your church, whether their first contact is with the vicar, an administrator or a church warden. For the family, it will be a time of big emotions and big questions.
You will want to care for them and make their service the best it can be. Behind that care, there will be a huge list of tasks, not just to plan all the services, but to keep in touch with the families afterwards and encourage them to stay connected. The LED is designed to help churches do this efficiently.
For several years, churches across the Church of England have been using the Pastoral Services Diary (PSD) to support Life Events administration. The LED is the next generation re-launch of this tool and will have some new features which have been developed in response to ongoing feedback from PSD users.
The LED is suitable for any kind of parish structure, from a single church to a multi-parish benefice.
It has been built with the combined experience and expertise of Church of England Life Events and iKnow church, specialists in church IT and administration systems.
