Why choose us for your church website?

 

As Christians, and church attendees, we know how important your website is to your church. Even if it isn’t currently the hub of everything you do, it should be. Your website says a lot about your church, and it’ll be the first place people go to when they’re considering visiting. So it’s important you make the right impression. Give the visitor all they need to know about your church to help them make an informed decision – show them what’s great about your church.

Considering website design for a church can be difficult. But we believe we have both the design eye and the technical savviness to make websites look great and function well.

Examples

Here we have three mock up websites for different styles of churches, and one live site. Whilst every church is different, and it’d be hard/unwise to pigeon-hole your church into one of the labels below, it may provide a handy starting point for your website.

Quick start: Watch the short videos to get a brief overview

Dig deeper: View the sites to see what kind of style would suit your church

Here is the bottom line

How much will my shiny new website cost?

Well, unfortunately, this kind of endeavour isn’t the easiest to quantify before we have some more information. It all depends on what you want, and how long it will take us to complete/how much hair we will have to pull out. To work this out, usually a brief conversation is all that’s needed – on the phone, or in person. 

Fear not, we don’t do a ‘hard sell’.
