Today, we’d like to introduce you to a church website, as produced by Sharefaith. After all the research, programming, development, designing, and cups of coffee, it’s only fitting that we’d want to show you around. For starters, we’ll just point out some features on the first page of an average church website. Take a look.

First of all, there are a bunch of awesome templates to choose from. For our tour, we’ll pick the Urban Church Website, a trendy and modern design. In the picture below, you can take a peek at all the rest (or visit the Church Website page).

Your Church Logo at the Top

At the top of the website template is your church’s name and logo. Here is where you establish your identity, and immediately inform your website visitor about where they’ve landed. You can create your own logo to fit right in this spot.

A Dazzling Rotating Banner

One of the most powerful features of the church website is this in-your-face rotating banner. The rotating banner takes up the most amount of screen area, and is located centrally. This banner is a good place to announce events, share a verse, or feature your church’s mission statement. You can customize the banners, and use Sharefaith website banners as a starting point for design.

Incredibly Useful Menu Bar

The menu bar at the top is the place where navigation begins. This menu bar stays constant, so visitors always know where they are going and how to get there. You can customize the menu bar for your church website.

Your Personal Welcome Message

We recommend keeping text to a minimum on the first page. There is a spot for a short-and-sweet welcome message right underneath the rotating banner. It’s usually the second thing that people look at after seeing the rotating banner.

Very Handy Social Media Links

Social media is important, so we’ve created a way to place social media links on the front page.

Some More Intuitive Links

To aid in navigation, we’ve created a second menu bar at the bottom. This way, visitors don’t have to scroll all the way to the top to find the menu again.

You may think that such a marvel of web engineering would take years of training, hours of frustration, gallons of caffeinated beverages, and thousands of dollars to achieve. Shaking your head sadly, you think, “No way. I can’t do that.”

Well, we’ve already done the work. And we introduce it to you, free of charge, in the form of Sharefaith Church Websites.
