18 of the Best Church Websites for 2018

Posted December 14, 2017 by Bryan Haley

Website design is constantly changing. Technology evolves and design trends change. Here are some of our favorite church websites for 2018. While this is not an exhaustive list, nor are the websites ranked in any order, we encourage you to use these designs as you look to update your own church website this year.

What you’ll notice:

Large images and video. Every one of these church websites use large images or videos throughout their website. Imagery is important.

Current. Every website on our list is updated. You won’t find outdated events or information.

No rotating announcements. The day of the marquee image rotator is over. You’ll be hard-pressed to find any current website that uses rotating images to share announcements.

Images of real people. Stock photography has its purpose, and you may even notice some stock images throughout a few of these websites. However, using images of real people that are part of your community and congregation is important too.

Clear Purpose. Each website is clear in its purpose. Who is the website trying to reach? Who’s the information targeted at?

Clear Call-To-Actions. Call-to-action buttons helps get your site's visitor to where they want or need to go quicker.

    Just finished up our website rewrite and ran across your site.  Really nice content pieces and many different ideas of how to put together church sites.  Thank you.  We are a small congregation in Wisconsin but if you would be willing to give feedback we’d love it!  http://www.oursaviorshartland.org

Branding can feel like a bad thing within the church. In reality, that’s not the case. It’s not in the Bible so why do we need to talk about it? How we represent ourselves can impact who we’re able to build relationships with.
