Places of worship and religious events: Managing registrations and entries

Places of worship and religious events: Managing registrations and entries

Since the appear­ance of Covid-19, var­i­ous mea­sures have been tak­en by gov­ern­men­tal and local author­i­ties to lim­it the spread of the virus at gath­er­ings, includ­ing a max­i­mum num­ber of peo­ple in a space, phys­i­cal dis­tanc­ing between groups, and so on. These changes, asked of organ­is­ers of gath­er­ings, could last until a 100% reli­able solu­tion to the virus is found. Sim­ple solu­tions allow you to man­age reg­is­tra­tions and entries to your reli­gious events and places of wor­ship while respect­ing the pro­tec­tive measures.


  1. Man­age atten­dance in advance
  2. Mon­i­tor the num­ber of peo­ple on site

1. Manage attendance in advance

Why set up a registration module?

It’s dif­fi­cult for an organ­is­er to pre­dict whether or not the lim­it on the num­ber of atten­dees will be exceed­ed on the day of their reli­gious or spir­i­tu­al event — e.g. cel­e­bra­tions, cer­e­monies, par­ties, con­certs, vig­ils, etc. Hav­ing to refuse entry to some atten­dees at the entrance to your place of wor­ship is even more dif­fi­cult.  The eas­i­est way to man­age atten­dance at your gath­er­ing is to ask your mem­bers to pre-reg­is­ter online, allow­ing them to attend while you lim­it the num­ber of entries available.

If your place of wor­ship — e.g. a church, mosque, syn­a­gogue, tem­ple, etc. — is required to com­ply with a lim­it on the num­ber of peo­ple at gath­er­ings, use an online reg­is­tra­tion solu­tion that will allow you to eas­i­ly set a max­i­mum num­ber of entries, which you’ll deter­mine before­hand accord­ing to the set-up of the space and the con­straints imposed. All you’ll then have to do is tell your mem­bers how to make a booking.

On D‑day, you won’t need to refuse entry to poten­tial atten­dees who come with­out hav­ing reg­is­tered pre­vi­ous­ly. Inform them of the arrange­ment and let them in at the last moment if you find that the attendee lim­it has not been exceed­ed. If your place of wor­ship is full, remind them of the reg­is­tra­tion process and invite them to reg­is­ter for your next gathering.

How do I set up a registration module?

With Weezevent’s intu­itive solu­tion, start propos­ing online reg­is­tra­tions for your reli­gious or spir­i­tu­al gath­er­ings now. Fol­low these 3 steps to con­fig­ure your mod­ule in just a few minutes:

Tip: If mem­bers of your organ­i­sa­tion are not com­fort­able with tech­no­log­i­cal tools, you can pro­vide them with a phone num­ber so that they can let you know when they’ll be at the gath­er­ing. You can then reg­is­ter them your­self on your reg­is­tra­tion mod­ule using the Add atten­dees feature.

2. Monitor the number of people on site

Antic­i­pat­ing the num­ber of peo­ple who will attend your gath­er­ing is essen­tial. Check­ing reg­is­tra­tions on site to avoid exceed­ing the set attendee lim­it is even bet­ter. There are sev­er­al solu­tions that allow you to achieve this with­out dif­fi­cul­ties and with no need for any tech­ni­cal expertise.

The two solu­tions that are best suit­ed to access con­trol for reli­gious or spir­i­tu­al events are using a phys­i­cal check­list and man­ag­ing entries by mobile phone with the WeezA­c­cess appli­ca­tion. How­ev­er, depend­ing on your needs and the num­ber of atten­dees, you also have the option of val­i­dat­ing your reg­is­tra­tions with a computer/tablet or scan­ning them in with WeezA­c­cess Pro terminals.

These dif­fer­ent options allow you to man­age entries and reg­is­tra­tions while avoid­ing phys­i­cal con­tact between your mem­bers and your staff. Weezevent’s solu­tions allow you to keep them safe through the use of strict pro­tec­tive mea­sures with­in your place of wor­ship.
