Are you on an iPhone or iPad? If so, it's probably the default iOS Calendar app. Here are some instructions for adding a calendar to the iOS Calendar:

You will need the sync URL for the calendar. You can skip the User Name, Password, and SSL fields.

I am responsible for updating the stake calendar online. I have just spent the day putting the Stake Calendar online, hoping using the correct options for the YSA and youth calendars etc. The issue is that there are some events that appear when I copy the url and create a calendar in Google and others don't. What I don't understand is I think I have used the same principles for all the events e.g. some stake presidency meetings appear and some don't but I can't see any difference in the options I have chosen other than the actual date of the meeting. Some calendars that I think I am subscribed to don't appear.

Any help would be gratefully received.
Thanks

Two possible issues:
First, you may not have some calendars included in your sync. I'd recommend creating a custom sync URL so when you make changes to the web page display, it doesn't affect your sync.

Second, Google syncs when it feels like it. Typically once every 24 hours. When you re-use a URL, it simply pulls it from it's cache rather than asking for new data. You'd either have to change the URL or wait 24 hours to get everything. That's all on Google.

I'm having an issue where I do all the steps needed to sync it all with Google, but when I make a change on the Church's calendar, it takes up to 48 hours or longer for it to sync with Google. Is there something I'm missing?

You're at the mercy of when Google decides to do it's sync with the church, as well as when your device decides to sync with your account.

As far as I know, there's no way to change that, or even decide when during the day it does it's sync.
