"We have found Church Pages to be an excellent website designer and developer for the Parish Church of St. Pierre du Bois, Guernsey. Heather and her team were able to take time to listen to what we wanted to achieve and to lead us through this process with sensitivity, expertise and professionalism. We are very grateful to them to allow us to have a website that reflects our values and practice. Thank you so much"
Rev Dr Adrian Datta, Rector, St. Pierre du Bois, Guernsey
St Peter's Church, Guernsey (also known as St Pierre du Bois) is an ancient parish church that celebrates hospitality, hope, and humour. Being a sister church of Holy Trinity, Guernsey Adrian was already aware of how easy Church Pages was to use and so contacted us so that we could help him to have a website that reflects his and St Peter's heart for Guernsey.
How the website was designed and built
As a sister church to Holy Trinity Guernsey it was important that the St Peter's website was not too dissimilar to theirs. They chose the Boaz template and were fortunate enough to access to some stunning professionally shot photographs. These really helped to set the tone of the site, which needed to celebrate the fact that St Pierre du Bois has been a place of worship for centuries, whilst not losing site of the need to be relevant to this generation.
Starting from scratch helped in certain respects. Although Adrian had a strong sense of what he wanted from the site he was happy to be guided by the Church Pages' team as we designed and built the site. It was exciting as everything came together and what had been spoken about and envisaged became a reality.
The finished website benefits from:
- A responsive website that celebrates the tradition of the church whilst feeling warm and welcoming.
- An easy to navigate website
- A site that can be updated by the church themselves without needing any knowledge of HTML or code.
- A friendly team at the end of the phone to help if need be.
What else did Church Pages do?
Being a new site we added in optimisation tags to the site and provided a link to their Facebook page.
How did the website go live?
Making the site live was simple as St Pierre du Bois pointed their domain to their new Church Pages website.
We really enjoyed partnering with Adrian, Chris, and the team at St Peter's Church Guernsey to provide a website that not only met their needs, but they felt confident enough to edit themselves.
