Welcome to the Learning Centre
Redbook Online is available to all Redbook subscribers at no extra cost.
To get started we need an email address to enter into our database as your Church’s primary contact email.
It can make position transitions easier if this is a generic Church email address such as firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you refer to your most recent Redbook, you will should find the current email listed for your Church under the Building details section or the Contractor details section.
You will need this email to setup your Church on Redbook Online. If you are experiencing difficulties locating the original email or you wish to change the email listed please contact us.
