Church Information Point
A Church Kiosks is an information point that can be accessed by members of the congregation and visitors to the church.
The information point can be easily updated whenever there is new information that needs adding. Unlike a conventional notice board, you never run out of space. Additionally when an event or news has lapsed, the kiosk automatically removes the posting, so you are not showing out of date information.
The kiosks can display information to new and would be church members. This might include how the society work, the structure of a service, information about the Sunday school and child facilities, information about the canteen or after service tea and coffee and so on.
You could also tell new members how they can get involved and offer their services to the church for the good of the congregation.
Because the kiosk can be accessed by anyone who visits the location, the kiosks can offer information about visiting access to tourists who wish to visit the building.
This might include tour guide times.
Opening hours for visits.
Interesting information about the building or artefacts.
A printable information sheet for people to read as they walk around. A Children’s print out is popular with information about the church, special things to look out for on the visit, as well as quizzes and puzzles.
Monetary Donations and Tithing
Kiosks can take monetary donations on behalf of the church. The kiosk can be fitted with a coinage collection box for donations.
Additionally the kiosk can take digital donations and accept credit cards. This is beneficial because not only can the kiosk accept one off donations but it can also be set up to take details of monthly donations, ideal for those people who with to tithe or donate on a regular basis.
ATMs for church donations are already in use in USA and it has proved to be very popular and digital collections are on the increase.
Religious Classes and Prayer Groups
This would be a section on the kiosks, which shows the times and dates that religious courses would be starting. Confirmation classes or the Alpha course for example. The kiosks can not only show the details of the course, but allow people to sign up for the course on the kiosk.
The kiosks can also provide invitation print outs for church members to print off and distribute to their friends who might be looking for religion in their lives.
Similarly the kiosks can provide information about prayer groups and healing events that other members might want to attend.
Members who Need Prayers
The kiosk can have a very simple message service for kiosk users to write and ask for prayers for themselves or other people. Then at the next prayer group, these people can be prayed for.
Healing Prayer Successes
The kiosks can collect and display testimonies of the most resent healing prayer successes. This brings good news to the members that prayers are being answered.
Fund Raising Events
This can not only advertise when a fund raising event is happening but can also ask for the help of the community to assist with the event either with practical help or donations.
When an event has taken place, the kiosks can also show photos and information about how the event went and how much money was raised.
How Your Donations have been spent
Donations are collected by religious societies through many different means – Tithing, service donations, donations, fund raising and so on. Many religious groups not only help people in their religious society and in their own community, but they may also help causes in other countries.
The kiosks can display information about where the money that has been donated has been spent, with information about how it has helped other people and transformed their lives. Photos can also be displayed with more information about how their people could be helped more and how much more money is needed to reach these goals.
There could also be information of new projects that the society would like to help with.
Sunday School Extra Printouts
Children love Sunday school with the magical stories, puzzles, games, things to make and lessons to learn.
The kiosks can have an archive of Sunday school lessons and work sheets for the children to print off and Sunday school activities they have missed or particularly enjoyed and would like to do again.
Members needing practical Help from other members
From time to time in the newsletter you may have members asking for assistance with gardening, caring for an old person, car sharing, or requests of other practical help.
The kiosk can work like the recruitment pages of a newspaper displaying help required. The kiosk user can send the person needing help an email from the kiosk and offer their services.
Like wise people wanting to give their sofa or old bicycle to someone who needs it could also advertise their offer of help.
Many churches run a book club from the Church selling religious books, prayer guide, bible study aids and other reading material.
Book clubs help to generate money for the church because a commission is paid for every book sold.
The Kiosks can incorporate a book club and offer a mini shopping area where customers can select books they wish to buy and pay for them directly at the kiosk. Customers can select for the order to be sent to them in the post with P&P charges added to the order, or they can request that they collect the order at an arranged time with no added cost to them.
With a Kiosk handling the book club, many more books are sold, because orders can be taken all the time and you don’t need to have someone physically manning the Book Club all the time.
Please take a look at our standard range of kiosks each of which is designed to create a base layer upon which a wide range of additional options can be included. Kiosks4business approved options include chip & pin, bar code scanner, printers and much more.
