EventOn Calendar :: Church Plugins

This is another installment of our WordPress for Church Sites Basics and we have been looking at some church plugins and today we are looking at the EventOn calendar. This is one of our staple church plugins. We use it on nearly every site we’ve built and it has our highest recommendation.

As far as church plugins for calendar areas or event’s pages go this one goes above and beyond. Most church sites using WordPress have one of those cheesy full month cals with 89 different things on them and it’s a pain to find the conference or event your looking for.

One tip I give in the video is that you should have two columns on your upcoming events page. One of them should be for your weekly events that happen all the time. The other should be for the upcoming events using the plugin. Check the picture out for an example. Church Plugins EventOn

Why? Because church plugins don’t solve problems unless you use smart design. Having weekly events insures that you don’t have 16 drop down boxes in July and frees visitors eyes up to focus on the upcoming events that are separate from the regular schedule! Now that the ‘pro tip’ is over, click the button below to watch the tutorial for ‘EventOn :: Church Plugins.’ The link to purchase this plugin is right HERE or you can visit the Stuff I Use page and find it there!

  • What do you do for events that require registration?

    • Hey there Andrew! One cool thing about EventOn is that it links to EventBrite. So if you create the event on EventBrite you can link EventOn to it and fulfill the registrations on your website.

      Another option, if it is a pretty simple registration, is using Gravity Forms (connected to PayPal, Stripe, whatever you use), and inserting a form into the event’s tab on EventOn and collecting registrations that way.

      Hope this helps! Let me know!

    • Also for event registrations we use the bluefire giving system. It’s like paypal for churches on steroids and is built for non-profits. In a church called The Summit is using Bluefire for a conference right now. http://summitcrestview.com/START

    Hi Andrew. Do you know of a way to allow users to subscribe to the entire event calendar instead of just adding a single event? We had this on a previous plugin, but eventon looks so much better.

    • Hey there! EventOn does not have that capability. I also have been using WordPress Pro Event Calendar quite frequently. They have subscribe capability and the look is not terribly different than EventOn.

    • Hey Revawd, I wanted to give you a heads up that Eventon does handle subrscribing to a calendar now!
