The household is the key building block of people within the Church admin plugin and needs defining!

A household is a connected group of people living at the same address. They can all share the same last name or have different ones. They can be related or not. And there can be more than one household at an address (e.g. a group of young adults who share a house)

A household could be…

  • A traditional Western family made up of mum and dad and children who all share the same surname
  • An Eastern European married couple where the last names are spelled differently according to their gender
  • A single adult
  • A co-habiting couple who have kept their last names.
