The Lighthouse Project Crawley Launches New Website
"'It has been such an exciting and enjoyable experience working with Heather and the team in putting our new website together. They made the process so easy and have done such a fantastic job. We had a long conversation at the beginning of the process where we got to express exactly what we required and they have delivered above and beyond our expectations. Thank you Church Pages!'"
Lizzie Ashley, Project Leader, The Lighthouse Project Crawley
From time to time Church Pages are approached by Christian charities to have help with their online presence. The Lighthouse Project Crawley knew of us through one of their trustees, Steve Burston, who is Vicar at St. John's Crawley. St John's have a website with us, and Steve thought that we might be able to help Lighthouse revamp their site.
How the website was designed and built
The Lighthouse Project is an ecumenical Christian Charity that exists to serve the schools of Crawley whilst sharing the Christian faith and values. The project is led by a team of staff and volunteers, and we were particularly impressed with their vision and commitment to ensure that every child and young person in Crawley will hear about the Christian faith and have the opportunity to explore how it could impact their own life.
The Lighthouse Project wanted a website that was responsive, contemporary, quick to load, easy to navigate, and simple to update. Lizzie Ashley, Project Leader, was very clear as to what she wanted for the website, which helped us to design a site that met her needs. As we worked with her we realised that we needed to create a new website template design, that was an extension of the Boaz template, but incorporated more blocks to add in further information. So the Isaiah template was birthed, and will be available soon.
The finished website benefits from:
- A contemporary responsive website that is professional and engaging.
- A website that loads quick and is easy to navigate.
- A website that can be managed in-house by The Lighthouse Project Crawley.
- A website that has accessed controlled areas for both schools and staff and volunteers.
- Support at the end of the phone when required.
What else did Church Pages do?
We optimised the site and embedded YouTube videos where required.
How did the website go live?
We took over the management of the domain, but worked closely with Lighthouse's email support service to ensure that their email service was not disrupted during the transition.
This project is very close to our hearts here at Church Pages as we are committed to seeing children and young people hearing the Gospel at school. This is not always easy to achieve, and it is so encouraging seeing the success and commitment of The Lighthouse Project to reach the children in their community with The Message that transforms lives.
