You can now easily share your events on your church’s Facebook page, straight from your ChurchDesk Calendar. With a single click, you can share your event now – reaching out beyond your church community. You can also choose to schedule the post for a later date – ChurchDesk will then post it automatically at the right time.

You can already schedule an event for Facebook when you’re creating it. If you’re more comfortable setting up the event first, to check that everything looks good, you can always share it later.

Create your event and ‘Share on Facebook’

While you’re creating your event, writing a great description and choosing a compelling image you can also choose when you want the event to be shared on your Facebook Page.

NB: The event visibility must be ´public’ before it can be shared on Facebook.

  • Click the tab ‘2. Public information’.
  • Check the ‘Share on Facebook’ checkbox.
  • Choose when you wish to share the event.
  • Write a compelling message to attract attention while people browser their news feed.
  • Save the event – ChurchDesk will now post it automatically at the selected time.

Don’t have a Facebook Page? Here’s how you create on

If you don’t have a Facebook Page already, we’ll recommend you to create one. Even though you’re already sending newsletters and making house visits, it’s a good idea to also be visible on Facebook. Most people are on Facebook, including those your church hasn’t met yet.

Creating a Facebook Page is quite simple. Check this link out to learn how.
