Haven Green Baptist Church, Ealing Launches New Website
"'We had been aware for some time that our website desperately needed updating as it was looking very tired and ‘clunky’. We are so blessed to have found Church Pages in our search for a new template. Working with Heather and her team has been a delight; their attention to detail, strong work ethic and willingness to go the extra mile to support our church has resulted in a fantastic looking and functioning website! We have received so many compliments on how well the website reflects the warm and welcoming nature of our church which was one of our key aims. I am looking forward to working with them in partnership to continue to deliver a dynamic website to meet the needs of our church and wider community."
Margaret Markie, Church Administrator, Haven Green Baptist Church, Islington
Haven Green Baptist Church, Ealing describes itself as "a diverse community, joyfully worshipping God with our whole lives, and joining with Him in transforming Ealing and beyond." And when you read their website, and see their truly engaging photos, you will get a sense of what a warm and friendly church it is.
Haven Green made contact with Church Pages during lockdown 2020 because they wanted a more user-friendly website. With the onset of lockdown the church wanted to incorporate live services on their site, as well as have a site that was easy to update themselves, and could be used to engage with their local community.
The church had its own brand document and had clear objectives, which helped to give us here at Church Pages clear guidelines on what Haven Green Baptist Church wanted from their website.
How the website was designed and built
With a clear remit of what Haven Green Baptist Church wanted we set to work creating the website using the Boaz template. We were particularly impressed with the quality of the photographs. All of them worked well responsively, and were beautifully shot to provide warm and engaging images. Being able to capture members of the congregation without them noticing is a real art, and certainly helps to add to the user's experience.
The finished website benefits from:
- A contemporary responsive website that is professional and engaging.
- A website that enables visitors to quickly access links to the live services.
- A members area where the congregation can access information.
- A website that loads quickly and is easy to navigate.
- A website that can be managed in-house by Haven Green Baptist Church.
- A website that has already received positive feedback.
- Support at the end of the phone when required.
What else did Church Pages do?
We optimised the site and gave training on how to manage the site so that Haven Green were confident in making changes themselves.
How did the website go live?
Haven Green Baptist Church redirected their domain to point to the Church Pages' server so that the website was launched on the required date.
We really enjoyed creating this website as the images and branding were strong, and the warmth of Haven Green Baptist Church really shone through the images and the copy. The site has worked well for them since its launch and we are pleased that we have been able to help with this
