25 Well-Designed Church Websites

In the past we’ve looked outstanding examples of church websites, and today we’re showcasing another 25 for your own design inspiration. The website is one of the most important means of communication for churches, both for reaching their regular attenders and those who may be looking for a church. Having an attracting website will make a strong positive first impression, and having a usable website that includes the information visitors want to find will make it extremely helpful to the church.

Here is a look at 25 quality church websites.

    Really? Where’s lds.org on this list? Quality design on the kind of massive scale normally reserved for social networks. I find it to be a pretty beautiful tribute to faith.

  • Brad, November 14, 2011

    Ah – I see you’ve got one of the smaller sites in your previous list – one that I hadn’t seen before: http://jesuschrist.lds.org/SonOfGod/eng/

    Very nice – I think my favorite is the app-like UI they’ve built for reading the scriptures. http://lds.org/scriptures/?lang=eng

    Some site is really good like design. Is typical starting by graphic have and old paper or parchment.. But site like “Beautiful live experience” and “Redemption” are so innovative..for me.

    Awesome collection of church site.Nice design.Thank you.

  • Vandelay Website Design, November 15, 2011

    Brad,
    Yes, this post is a follow up to several other collections of church websites we’ve published in the past, so there are a number of good church sites out there that are not included in this particular post.

  • Immeemz, November 15, 2011

    These are lovely. However, I conducted an accessibility audit on all 25 of them. NOT ONE OF THEM…no, not one…is accessible. I first tested keyboard accessibility as that is the easiest to test for. Only 3 passed this test. Of those, I then tested for closed captioning or text alternatives to multimedia. Of those, only 2 passed that test. That left 1 site, which I then tested for screen reader accessibility: failed.

    So much for the Word of God being accessible to all people!!

  • Ryan Leaper, November 15, 2011

    Some fantastic examples of well designed church websites. I like the fact that they don’t rely on cliches like clouds and praying hands etc but instead adopt much more modern and up to date designs. Attracting new members is an important issue for the church so having a well designed website is an important factor. There are a number of sites here that I particularly like but I think the Redemption site stands out for me for its nice use of css3, good typography and interesting textures.

  • David, November 15, 2011

    • Vandelay Website Design, November 17, 2011

      Hi Paul,
      NewSpring was included in a previous showcase of church websites, so we didn’t include it in this one. It’s a great looking site.

  • Artisan Media, November 16, 2011

  • Ken, November 25, 2011

    I Like Idlewild Presbyterian Church :) all are great though and I’m guessing I’d have a tough time myself considering it’s a church you’re designing for

  • Shalini, November 26, 2011

    Awesome Collection of Church sites and some fantastic examples or tips for Web designer. Thanks for sharing

  • Jitendra Shah, November 29, 2011

    Church sites never have to be the dull boring black and brown. This is proof of it.

  • Angie, March 27, 2012
