WorshipPlanning.com overview

What is WorshipPlanning.com?

WorshipPlanning.com is a cloud-based church service planning solution which allows users to create worship flows, plan music, schedule volunteers, attach files, and more. The platform can be used by churches of different sizes, with multiple users able to collaborate on planning, and an unlimited number of ‘helper’ accounts available for volunteers to access event information.

WorshipPlanning.com’s drag-and-drop worship flow editor allows users to plan services down to the second. Multiple flow templates can be created and applied, and a single worship flow can be managed across multiple services. Element-specific notes can be added to provide information to team members, and files can be attached directly to services. Users can also include music from the songs library, which allows users to build, share, search, filter, and report on songs. The rehearsals page enables the scheduling of practices, and stage arrangements can be designed using the Virtual Stage tool.

WorshipPlanning.com allows users to schedule volunteers based on their availability, serving preferences, and qualifications, through the drag-and-drop interface. Individual volunteers and teams can be scheduled, and all volunteers are notified automatically when they have been scheduled to serve, allowing them to to accept or decline their assignments. Serving volunteers can also be reminded automatically via SMS or email. Team leaders can authorize volunteers to access files required for services, including MP3 files of songs.

Sometimes on mobile the lyrics for a song can be cut off. But that's not something we use often anyway.

Pros
We've been using WorshipPlanning.com for years, and it has never let us down. It does just what we need without being bloated with stuff we don't need. Every Sunday is organized, and everyone can see what is going on. We have a rotation of disparate music leaders, so having visibility into what has been played recently was important to us. Everyone is now literally on the same page! There are more features available than we use because we are so small. But I can see that there is a lot of power available if we needed it.

Thank you for the feedback! We try to keep the more advanced features out of the way when you only need the basic functionality.

Its the administrative staff I never had that frees me up to create and focus on worship

Pros
It is simple as you want it to be and deep as you want it to be. In the short term and for the quick and easy it can put together a program in minutes. In the long term as you keep using it and the repertoire grows, it is fast and doesn't miss any administrative events. I depend on it and I haven't missed a beat. As a leader, it puts the onus on the team to follow through on assignments that and cover for subs when called for. As a communication tool I use it to organize any kind of concert as the timeline is flawless in sticking to a timeclock. So good is its coverage that I often use it in broadcast TV situations along with Pro Presenter.

Cons
It competes and exceeds performance of other software packages, but doesn't have the exposure and marketing advertising that others may have because the company puts its resources into the software. That would be a "con" to some who are interested in having marketing rule their brand.

Worship Planning is a great company with a useful product that could use an update

Worship planning helps our team coordinate its schedule and get on the same page ahead of our practices.

Pros
Worship planning does a good job of the basic functionality of coordinating the schedule of our team.

Cons
Worship planning has pretty basic functionality compared to its competitors and could use a modern design refresh.

Response from Worship Sense


We sincerely appreciate the feedback, Tim. It truly helps us improve! In the 15 years we've been around, our internal development motto has been "be the best at the basics". In other words, while there are many solutions out there with lots of bells and whistles, we feel those often come at the expense of making things complicated and expensive.

That said, we've worked hard to keep up with what the majority of users ask for...things like text notifications, self-signups, song arrangement management, and a growing list of integrations with other cloud-based software.

Regarding the design looking a little aged, we agree. We are actually in the midst of a user interface redesign. Thankfully, the way we've coded the software allows us to do a redesign without doing a complete rewrite.

Thanks again, Tim, for your honest feedback. I'm more than happy to chat with you further about any of these, or other items. Just give us a call at 877-399-3342 and ask for Tom.

Worshipplanning.com has been a great tool for us in planning worship and related tasks.

Great planning tool, great way to distribute information across many different ministries and people.

Pros
It's intuitive, it's easy to learn and use, response to feedback and enhancement has been superb, and it's expandable for use by many different types of ministries. We not only use it for worship planning, but we use it for kids and student ministry as well, and also as a type of database for storing files and other info in logical ways, and making that info available to others.

Cons
Like any software, I have several small nits - small nit-picky things that I'd change in the way that it behaves, or enhancements that might make a common task for me more easily accomplished. But overall, I'm very happy with it.

Great for Planning the Weekly Worship Services

Used weekly for 2+ years

Review Source: Capterra

Pros
There are several features we like as a team. Our Pastor can go into the system and add his message series, title, text several weeks in advance. The planners then can also login and add members of the worship team, tech team and connections team. The planner can see when a team member accepts their role for that week.

Cons
Wish there was more flexibility with the elements portion of the service. Each part of the service uses different people and different mics. There is no way to communicate things like the announcement person will be using mic #? or color ?. There is no way to chart that on the schedule so that everyone of the team knows, what and where.

Response from Worship Sense


Hi Pastor May. Thank you so much for the great feedback! You may be interested to know that using the "role notes" for each element, you can put specific notes for specific roles, people, or teams (like which mic they are to use or where they are to stand). Perhaps that feature can allow you to communicate the exact info you need the singers and musicians to have. Anyway, thanks again for the review!
