Site Account : Registration Help

Why register for a site account?

If you are a member of the church family you will find that logging in to the St John's website provides you with much more information. You can view the weekly bulletin sheet online, listen to sermons and talks, and see all of the events happening in the life of the church in the "Diary" section of the website. If you are on a team which has a rota, the website has a facility to show the most up to date version of the rota to you. If you are on the PCC you can view all of the documents for forthcoming meetings and meetings which have happened in the past.

 

If you are not a member of the church family then registering doesn't make any difference. You can already view information about all our activities and services, and about most of our events, without needing to register.

 

How do you define a "church family" member?

If you have filled in a yellow "church family" form then you are counted as a member. These forms are available in the church lounge and should be returned to the church office once they are completed. When you register for the website, we check your registration against our church family list and then click some buttons to enable you to access more of the website.

How do I register?

Click "Site Account" in the main menu, and then go to "Register".

 

What happens when I've registered?

The system will send a confirmation email to the email address you supply. The email will contain a link which you need to click. Once you have done this your account will be activated. This is a standard procedure on the web to prevent people from signing others up to things without their knowledge, to enable a password to emailed to you when you forget it, etc.

 

Once my account is confirmed, how do I login?

Your account will usually be confirmed within 24 hours of registration, although at present you do not receive an email notification that this has happened. Once you are registered and you wish to log in, select "Login" from the main menu and enter your username and password.

 

Will my details be secure?

Yes. We only need your first name, your last name, your email address and your password. Your password will be encryted so that even the webmaster will not be able to decrypt it. The only item of any value to anyone else is your email address which we will not pass on to anyone else under any circumstances.

 

What do I do if I forget my password?

Your password is encryted, so we can't tell you what it was. If you forget it, then log in in the usual way. If you get your password wrong you will be presented with a "lost password" link. The system will email a random, temporary password which you can use to log in. You can then choose your own password using the Edit Details option from the Site Account page.

 

Can I change my password and / or email address?

Yes. Log in in the usual way, and go to the Edit Details option from the Account page.
