See upcoming church events alongside your personal diary
We announced on 23rd April 2017 that events in CLF Greenwich calendar can be synchronised into any calendar programme that supports the iCalendar(.ics) file format e.g. Google Calendar, Yahoo Calendar, Android Phone, iPhone, iPad etc. This meant that you can view upcoming church events alongside your personal, or office, mobile calendar. Also, any event changes to the church calendar will automatically be updated on your mobile diary.
To give you additional flexibility to slot into upcoming events in the church calendar, we've listed these events on ChurchSuite. You can now view and reserve your spot at upcoming events through the mobile app in addition to the CLF Greenwich website. Consequently, the iCal feed for synchronising events to your phone has been updated to:
