More free texting – when you change
Text messaging through ChurchInsight: what do you want your sender ID to be? Tell us soon and you’ll get £10 free texting.
your sender ID
Thanks to everyone who joined in the free texting offer in March. We had a great response from churches keen to try out the service. We hope you found it a helpful way to communicate with your members.
One of the features of texting through your ChurchInsight website is that you can change the sender ID to match your organisation. The sender ID is the “from” name that appears on the recipient’s phone when you send them a text message.
The default sender ID of ChurchInsight text messages is "INSIGHT". But you can change it to whatever you want to show that it comes from your church – "Cool Church" or "CC Office" for example.
To change your sender ID simply email email@example.com with the details listed below. And as a reward for using our text services, we will give you £10 of free texting.
The deadline for this offer is 14 May 2012. Once you have emailed us, we’ll confirm the sender ID change, and you’ll get £10 worth of texting credit added to your 1 June invoice.
Texting is the fast and easy way to contact church members directly. Texting through ChurchInsight is cheaper than with many mobile phone service providers. You don’t have to buy credit or pay a fee – you simply pay in your normal invoice each month for the messages that you have sent.
Please make sure you give us the following information:
Your NAME, Your WEBSITE ADDRESS, your EMAIL, and your requested SENDER ID.
IDs can be up to 11 characters including spaces but may not contain any non alphanumeric characters.

Sending text messages from your ChurchInsight website is simple. You’ve already got everyone’s contact details so you just need to write the message in the web office, select who you want from the address book, and click send.
Texting through ChurchInsight only costs around 8 pence plus VAT per text, cheaper than many mobile phone providers. You don’t have to buy credits or pay a fee – simply send the messages whenever you want and the cost will be added to your monthly bill.
A whole month of texting free, with no strings attached
To introduce our customers to the texting service, we’re offering a calendar month of text messaging absolutely free. For the whole month of March 2012, you will not be charged for any text messages that you send through your ChurchInsight website.
It’s the perfect way to give texting a go. Or, if you’re already using the service, you can just enjoy the usage for nothing! There are no obligations – at the end of the month, you can simply stop sending text messages, or carry on into April to be charged at the normal rate.
There is a default limit on the texting service of 100 messages per day. Please contact us if you require a higher amount. The default sender – the name that shows up on the recipients’ phones – is INSIGHT. Change the sender name (takes 7 days to take effect).
No sign up – try texting immediately
To start communicating with your members through free text messages, simply start sending texts from your web office on 1 March 2012.
A minority of our customers do not have text messaging enabled on their websites. If you are not sure, or do not know who in your organisation controls the messaging, contact firstname.lastname@example.org who will help you to find out.
