This is statistical data about our users' browsing actions and patterns, and does not identify any individual.
Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your device when you visit a website. Cookies are then sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit, or to another website that recognises that cookie.
Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise a user’s device. Cookies do lots of different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improve the user experience. They can also help to ensure that adverts you see online are more relevant to you and your interests. The cookies used on this website have been categorised based on the categories found in the International Chamber of Commerce UK Cookie guide. A list of all the cookies used on this website by category is set out below.
Strictly Necessary Cookies:
These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around our site and use its features, such as accessing secure areas. Without these cookies some of the services you have asked for could not be provided.
These cookies collect information about how visitors use a website, for instance which pages visitors go to most often, and if they get error messages from web pages. These cookies do not collect information that identifies a visitor and all information collected is aggregated and therefore anonymous. These cookies improve how a website works.
These cookies allow the website to remember choices you make (e.g. language setting, text size) and provide enhanced, more personal features. They can help provide local services by storing in a cookie the region in which you are currently located. These cookies may also be used to provide services you have asked for such as watching a video or commenting on a blog. The information collected may be anonymous and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.
These cookies are used to deliver adverts more relevant to you and your interests. They also limit the number of times you see an advertisement and help to measure the effectiveness of a campaign. They are usually placed by advertising networks with the website operator’s permission. They remember that you have visited a website and share this information with other organisations such as advertisers.
Where we store your personal data
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.
Uses made of the information
During the registration process or when using our interactive services you will have the opportunity to consent to us sending you certain information electronically. This can include information such as:

- Answering your specific questions or comments.
Your information will also be used for:
- Making connections between users and churches which respectively provide their contact details, providing each party with the other’s contact details.
- Optimisation of your use of the site.
We do not disclose information about identifiable individuals to our advertisers, but we may provide them with aggregate information about our users (for example, we may inform them that 500 men aged under 30 have clicked on their advertisement on any given day). We may also use such aggregate information to help advertisers reach the kind of audience they want to target (for example, women in SW1). We may make use of the personal data we have collected from you to enable us to comply with our advertisers' wishes by displaying their advertisement to that target audience.
