Ministry, Church or Chapel Websites
I discovered Church Themes when looking for a Premium Theme that would check all the boxes provided to me by one of my clients. Things that were important to her and that Church Themes had all the bases covered were:
- Sermons by topic, book, series, speaker and date.
- Sermons as text, audio or video and podcasting support for sermons.
- Profiles for staff and leaders, photo galleries and blogging (great for church news).
- Events (with monthly calendar, recurrence, categories (aff), maps and directions).
- Responsive mobile-friendly church theme.
- Real-time customization of your colors and fonts.
- Custom header images and footer widgets.
Church Content WordPress Plugin
The Church Content plugin helps you make your church website by adding powerful features to WordPress for publishing sermons, events, people, and locations. For example, you can create a sermon archive with sermons in text, audio, video, and PDF formats.
Your media can be uploaded via WordPress or embedded from popular sites like YouTube, Vimeo, and SoundCloud. You can organize sermons by topic, series, book, and speaker. The Pro version of the Church Content plugin makes it easy to set up sermon podcasting on iTunes, Google Play, and others.
Manage your church events with details for date, time, and location. Events can be categorized, and with Pro, you can save time with automatically recurring events (e.g., “last Sunday of each month” or “every two weeks except holidays”). Other features include locations for sharing where and when you meet and staff profiles.
Church Content Pro adds even more features which you can read about below. However, what I recognized as essential were the provided guides and videos that have step-by-step instructions to help you build your new church website.
For those seeking a new cutting-edge website design for their church, ministry, or even a youth group, one of these three themes can get the job done for you. But, before you decide, read my article on how to choose the right WordPress theme, so you know all the variables you need to consider. Then take your time to go through the provided demo sites very carefully.
If you end up using one of these themes, send me a link — I'd love to see what you create!
