Before you begin, make a plan for your church website. Start with a simple church website and grow when you need to. Don’t take on more than your church is ready for.

As you plan your site, consider the following pages that we feel are essentials for every church website. This list helps to set a solid foundation that can be built on in the future.

The Church Website Foundation:

  • Services:
    • List the service times and locations.
    • Indicate if there are Sunday school classes, children’s programs, etc.
  • Visitors or Connect:
    • Explain what a visitor should expect.
    • Explain how new members can connect. If you have small groups, list them and provide simple directions on how to get connected.
  • Ministries:
    • List each ministry and how to get involved or support the ministry.
  • About Us:
    • Introduce the pastor.
    • Clarify the beliefs, vision, mission, etc.
  • Contact Us: Includes an email contact form, church phone number and address. Directions using Google maps (optional).
