Back in January 2010, we increased the standard Energize subscription from £17 per month to £20 per month.
Over the decade we have been able to make significant improvements to the content and functionality of Energize whilst maintaining the standard price at £20 per month.
Having maintained our pricing for ten years, we now need to introduce a modest price rise from April 2020.
Energize Standard price – this will increase from £20 to £21 per month with effect from April 2020. If you pay annually, on your renewal from April 2020 this will be £252 per year, up from £240 per year.
In the first 12 months of your current subscription? We will honour the current price for the full 12 months even if that extends past April 2020.
Energize Plus price - this will increase from £25 to £26 per month with effect from April 2020. If you pay annually, on your renewal from April 2020 this will be £312 per year, up from £300 per year.
Other pricing – if you enjoy an ongoing denominational or similar discount, the % discount will be applied to the new standard price.
Larger organisations – from April 2020, there will be a higher charge for those of you with a turnover exceeding £300,000 per annum in each of the last three year’s published accounts. The new monthly price for larger organisations will be £25 per month, from £20 or £300 per annum, up from £240. Again, if a large organisation is in the first 12 months of its current subscription, we will honour the current price for the full 12 months, even if that extends past April 2020. If you fall into this band we will be in touch with more details during January and February.
For churches/organisations with a turnover less than £300,000 per annum:
If you pay your subscription via Direct Debit then your payments will automatically increase to the new rates from the first payment due after 1st April 2020. We recommend you alert the bill payer to this and adjust your budget. No further action is required.
If you renew your subscription annually via card or invoice your renewal notice will be adjusted to the new rate when you reach your first renewal date after the 1st April 2020.
For churches/organisations with a turnover more than £300,000 per annum:
We will be in touch before the end of February 2020 with confirmation of your renewal price.
If you are thinking about subscribing to Energize then you can beat the price rise by signing up before 1st April 2020. We will honour the price that you sign up for for a full 12 months from the date of sign-up.
Don't forget that Energize is a resource that can serve all areas of your work with children and young people from age 3 to 15+. Your subscription includes unlimited access to all resources for as many leaders as you wish to add to your account.
For our part, we want as many people as possible within your organisation able to enjoy all of the benefits from the changes we have made over the last 18 months. That could be the new search launched at the end of 2019, the group profiles that mean you can automatically optimise sessions for theme, duration, venue, group size and stage of faith - saving over half of your reading time, the different font-size prints, easier password resets, the YouthVids and Messy Church resources, the new session builder, the downloadable presentations for visual learners, the new series, or the ever-increasing new media. We know that time is tight for you and the potential volunteers you recruit - because we’re youth and children’s ministry volunteers too. So please do get in touch if you need help to make the most of Energize.
We’re also continuing to support churches starting out with youth and children’s work and small churches working in disadvantaged areas. If this is of interest, let us know and we will be in touch.
