Any Church/Ministry may choose to apply for registration in order to protect its name and beliefs. A church may see registration as a way of protecting its name from being used or misused by others. For example, if conflict within a church prompts some members to break away, one or both groups may want to establish an exclusive right to continue to use the church’s name.
We offer exclusive church administration and church registration services ensuring that the administration of the church is up to date and effective.
