Editing my Messy Church on the directory

How do I edit my Messy Church?

If you added your Messy Church to the directory then you will be able to edit it from your account. First log in (there's a tab for requesting a new password if you have forgotten it), then you should see your Messy Church(es) displayed in a list:

Your churches

If you click the 'View' link you will see your Messy Church as others see it when they browse the website. If you want to change the information you see there, click the edit tab at the top just under the Messy Church name.

I can't see my church on my account page

If you cannot see a link to your church on your account page (like the image above) then please contact us. Please do not add the church to the directory again.

Edit my Messy Church

After clicking this you will see all the different pieces of information relating to your Messy Church. At the bottom of the page there's a button to save what you enter. After saving you will find the new information displaying.

How do I change my Messy Church location?

Once you've logged in, click the Edit button. On your listing you will find there is a map. Simply drag and drop the pin using your mouse until the pin is in the right location. You can zoom in and out and switch to satellite view to make the location is correct. You can also press the ZOOM to my address button to centre the pin on your address.
