Hi. Am looking at Rock as a potential church management solution. We are a small (<120 person) church in the UK. All we really want to use Rock for is as a pastoral database (record small group attendance & give small group leaders the ability to add pastoral notes for their group). What’s the minimum spec we would need - or, dare I say it, would there be something else that would be more simple/suitable?

    The "Planning for Rock" manual (link) has some server spec recommendations. It sounds like you would fit comfortably into their "Small Installs" recommendation.

    If your organization is registered as a nonprofit/charity you are likely eligible for a yearly grant from Microsoft that would more than cover your hosting costs on Azure. Here is Microsft's info page about their nonprofit program:
