How to re-open your church in the midst of social distancing

Churches and religious organizations all over the world are facing challenges to re-opening their doors during the decline of the COVID-19 outbreak.

How can you reopen safely?

Implementing a ticketing system and allowing your congregation to tune in online can solve all of these problems! Church ticketing is essential in the COVID era.

Church Ticketing is the simple solution to safely resuming in-person religious services

How it can work for your congregation:

Start by setting up a custom event page with Eventgroove in 15 minutes.

Customize your event hub page for your place of worship (add images, logos, and detailed info about the services you offer each week) and share with your congregation.

Attendees can log on and reserve their seats, or register for the virtual live stream for whichever service they want.

Tickets will stop being available once the service has reached max capacity.

Create an event hub

Include all event info on this page and share with your congregation.

Provide a virtual option

Since capacity is limited, allow everyone to attend by providing an online attendance option.

Attendees reserve their seats

When attendees register, they can select a seat or group of seats from a reserved seating chart that we’ll configure for you. Some seats will be blocked off to allow for social distancing. 

OR

Attendees can choose to attend your service virtually by selecting your virtual event option. They will receive an encrypted link, via email, to use to attend the live stream event.

 

 

Optional donation

Parishioners that would typically donate during your church service can do so through our platform.

Key features

Seating chart

  • Send us a layout of your space and we’ll digitize it and configure a layout to allow for social distancing for your services. This is your new reserved seating chart.
  • Seats can be reserved for a single person or groups of people, spaced 6 feet apart to adhere to social distancing regulations.

Streaming integration

  • Allow your congregation to join services through a virtual experience. Use a live streaming platform and some basic best practices to live stream your church services.

Capacity control

Ensure your place of worship operates within the guidelines in your area. Putting a limit on the number of tickets that can be reserved for in-person services is a fool-proof way to stay compliant.

Achieve social distancing

Selling tickets using reserved seating charts allows your congregation to reserve their seats before the service. You send us a layout of your space, we’ll create a seating chart (for free!) that achieves social distancing and allows to maximize capacity when still limiting in-person attendees.
