EditorsPick_2014_200The team at Worship Times is dedicated to empowering congregations developing their church websites and digital presence. On November 1 Worship Times was named one of Worship Leader Magazine’s Editor’s Pick for web development (read more here). So for the next couple of weeks we will be presenting what we consider to be the 10 Commandments for Church Websites. If you have further questions or want to learn more about Worship Times, please feel free to email us.

5th Commandment for Church Websites

Thy website shalt be mobile-friendly

Many people use their phones to access information on-the-go, including looking up churches and worship times. If your website looks great on a computer but doesn’t function on a phone, visitors may pass you up. Many tablets also default to a website’s mobile view. The easiest way to see how your website looks on a phone is to go to the site on your own phone and have a friend who’s never been to the church’s website check it out on their phone to see if the mobile version is visitor friendly.

Each template that Worship Times offers is mobile responsive (meaning the site automatically sees what device someone is using and adjusts to best view for the device), so if you have a Worship Times site your site is mobile-friendly.

4. Thou shalt keep it short

3. Thou shalt use pictures that show thy community in action

2. Thou shalt be on thy website who God is calling thou to be in the world
