Church Update (incorporating Annual Returns)
Church Update (which was launched in January 2020) enables you to make changes to the information we hold regarding your church throughout the year and complete the Annual Returns process at the appropriate time each year.
Please follow this link to access the system.
Using Church Update
Once logged in you will be able to view the church information we currently hold and make any necessary amendments. A ‘Guide to Church Update’ is provided as guidance. Church Update will be open all year round, so you will always be able to view the information we hold and update it as necessary.
Please note that, due to legislative requirements, you will not be able to use Church Update to change your DBS Verifiers although you will be able to see who we currently have listed in that role for your church. Please continue to use the existing process to notify us of any changes.
The Annual Returns process is now part of Church Update although this section will only be open for a limited period every year. The 2019 Annual Returns closed in March 2020 and the 2020 Annual Returns will open towards the end of the year.
Should you experience any problems, that cannot be rectified by referring to the Guide to Church Update, (or you have mislaid your church's login details) please contact us using the Church Update Contact Us Form.
We have a page of statistical information from the BUGB Annual Returns (Including 2019)
