Welcome to September! Or as we are calling it Church Website Design Month.

Your website is the front door to your church.

We say that because most people will visit a church’s website before they visit the church for a worship service.

Not only will potential visitors view your website, but they will also get their first impression of your church from the website and decide whether or not they will visit in person.

It’s impossible to overestimate the importance of your church website to your church outreach!

If one of your goals for 2023 or 2024 is to redesign your church website or make some improvements to the design of your church website, we’re here to help you do that this month.  Here’s how…

7 Church Website Design Tips and Tools

1) Church Website Design Services. If you are interested in having Christian web developers with lots of experience build a new website for your church. Check out our church web design services and request a free, no obligation phone consultation. This is a great solution for pastors and church communications folks who want a great church website but don’t have the time or experience to do it well.

2) Church Website Builder.  If you want a new church website and have the time to do it yourself, our WP-EZ Church Website Builder is easy to use, affordable and designed specifically for churches.  No need to install WordPress, buy a theme, or install dozens of plugins. WP-EZ does all of that for you.

3) Update Your Church Website Theme.  If your website looks a little dated or you just want to change things up, one way to do that is to switch to a new website theme.  If you built your website within the last 4 years or have already migrated to WP-EZ 2.0, switching themes takes just a few clicks.  If you built your website more than 4 years ago with our original WP-EZ Website Builder (or 8+ years ago with our NE1 Website Builder), we strongly encourage you to switch themes and migrate to WP-EZ 2.0.  Your new website will look and function sooooo much better!

4) Video Tutorial Library.  Have you already built your website with our WP-EZ Website Builder and want to make it even better?  We have an extensive library of web builder video tutorials for our original WP-EZ Website Builder as well as WP-EZ 2.0

5) Free Website Reviews.  Even the most experienced web developers can benefit from a fresh set of eyes and some honest feedback.  We’ll review your website once a year at no cost.  So, if you haven’t gotten your free review yet in 2020, request a free website review now.

6) Ultimate Guide to Church Website Design.  If you want to build a new website or improve your website in your own, get our insider tips on the church website design process we use in our free Ultimate Guide to Church Website Design.

    • Hey, Thank you for sharing this great information
      I run a web design company in India, As a internet marketer your information helped me alot and your content is very usefull as well.

    • Hello! Paul the information is truely informative but the church is not a business, it’s a place of worship. The people came to church because of their faith in Jesus not for not for any else reason. If they want donate they may donate to present platform. Why do you think that web design redesign is good idea for this holy places. I think it’s expensive and a lot of time needed to redesign the website.

      • Hi Fiona, good question. Churches invest time and money as they are led by God to do things to advance the kingdom of God – spreading the gospel, gathering for worship, helping the poor. Most people check out a church’s website before they visit a church in person, so having a good website that is easy to use and communicates who the church is and what they do is essential for outreach and for helping people who are apart of the church get connected and serve one another.
