Church Website Design Project: About Us
Read our Ecumenical Consultant's Welcome, The Reverend John Barden Davies
The Church Website Design Project was established in 2005 to promote online church communication within the UK and to encourage churches to use online media for outreach and mission within the local and wider communities.
We are made up of a small group of Christians from varying backgrounds, all of whom have dedicated their lives to God. We are blessed to be supported by so many ordained clergy, who encourage and assist in equal measure, and, of course, the core base of laity who work directly with churches and Christian organisations on a daily basis.
In the five years since we were established, the Church Website Design Project has worked exclusively with churches (and Christian organisations) and has developed a model of 'Best Practice' which we use extensively with all our clients, ensuring every project is tailored to the needs of each individual Christian community. In everything we do, whether working on a 1-1 basis with a church or updating existing websites, our focus is always firmly fixed on Jesus; it is for His glory that we walk this path.
The Project offers a number of professional services, including: website development; webmaster maintenance; photography; hosting services - all based around an affordable price structure that works on a not-for-profit principle. What does this mean exactly? It means we never turn a church away based on its ability to pay for our services. Our core principles revolve around this basic construct, enabling all church communities to fully realise their online potential.
Our commitment to our clients is very simple: we will do our utmost to support you in developing high standards of online communication, backed up by experience, training and a developed understanding of the challenges facing the church today. Our interactive sites help real dialogue to take place, and have significantly supported a large number of people find God. We will work with you from where you are to where you need to be online, respecting and working within your church tradition.
We would be delighted to help you explore your online potential, whether you require our services or simply want to discuss how you can develop a website ‘in-house’. Our website will help you explore every aspect of our services and most importantly what our clients have to say about their experience of working with us.
