Safe Ministry Records Online (SaMRO) System – How to use

Keeping Safe Ministry Records

Safe Ministry Records Online (SaMRO) is a database designed for any church to use as a safe, secure easy to use system for maintaining the electronic aspect of parish Safe ministry records.

You can read about the SaMRO here. At the end of that page are links for a more detailed document and the spreadsheet template for data transfer.
Any problems or questions, email Neil Atwood

This is a guide to the basic functions of the system, but if you have any questions not covered here, please contact us directly.
This guide assumes that you already have the basic details of your church members set up in the system (something we assist with)
