Mobile apps can be a great solution for some churches and ministry organizations, but in most situations, a well-built website that’s completely optimized for mobile can meet all of your needs without the higher costs and constant maintenance that a dedicated mobile application requires. When a website is built well, it can do everything a mobile app can do—and more.
All websites built by Worship Times are 100% mobile responsive at no additional cost! Over the last decade, mobile-friendly websites have gone from a preference to a must. Google now predominantly uses the mobile version of websites for indexing and ranking when evaluating the relevance of a page to a user’s search query.
If your church website doesn’t seamlessly display on devices that most people use, you risk losing engagement – as well as potential members and donations. The easiest way to check whether your church website is optimized for mobile devices is to simply pull up the site on your smartphone. If your website looks like a micro version of the desktop version and all the content is impossible to read, hard to navigate, and you constantly need to zoom in, it’s safe to say that your website is not responsive or mobile-friendly.
Having a mobile-responsive church website gives users a positive experience and keeps them engaged with your church. Our team makes it a priority to stay current on the top website design trends and standards.
If your church finds itself truly in need of a mobile application we can help with that, too! All of our requests for proposals start with a conversation about your overall goals and objectives. At that time, we’ll compare all the pros and cons of apps vs. mobile-friendly sites. Often when we get to the heart of what that potential partner is trying to accomplish, we find that a custom website is actually the best path. But, if an app does seem to be the best choice at the end of the day, we’ll work with you to make that happen!
