A rural Parish Church right in the heart of the Cornwall with an historic past wanted a website fit for the modern world. As well as a place of worship, the church acts as a social hub for locals, a music venue for fundraising events and a visitor attraction so they needed a site with services and features that have the scope to reach out to all audiences.
There’s sometimes a reluctance for traditional organisations to take advantage of online services – even if their members have embraced these tools in their everyday lives.
But for an community like the Church, where “reaching out” to people is fundamental to their ethos, can there be a better time to engage with technology?
By embracing change and working with SeaDog IT, we’ve helped this church establish a website that will serve them well today – and tomorrow.
With the ability to integrate & process online payments when required, there’s the opportunity to develop online giving & fundraising for much need repairs to an historic building.
And as part of any community work like this project, we’ll take your staff and train them up so they can keep the website up to date, post news items, update calendars and create online events.
By complementing the website with Facebook and Twitter accounts this helps give your church the relevance necessary to communicate effectively today.
A church website broadcasts your message globally. Instantly – without buying a ticket, experiencing jet lag, or eating airline food, your church can reach as far as Europe, Asia, or Africa.
Regardless of its size, your church can spread its message worldwide.
Closer to home, it can lighten the load for every busy clergy & staff by acting as one-stop-shop to answer the multitude of questions people have about their local church – can we get married there? What time is the Sunday service and where can we find you?
So if you have a non-profit organisation that is struggling to engage or navigate through the digital age, talk to SeaDog IT and we’ll be happy to guide you.
For a Church that can trace it's history back at least 1500 years there's something wonderful in having such a modern website! SeaDog IT trained up some of our members so we can update the site, create events and keep our congregation, friends and supporters up to date. We're really pleased with the site.
