    Just clicked your first link as (eastpoint.org) and unfortunately the website loads a malicious javascript file (Detected: Trojan.JS.Redirector.cq http://losotrana.com/js.php)

  • Ken, May 20, 2010

    Might I suggest an addition?

    Wow. This genre has really stagnated. This looks like every list of beautiful church websites in the last 4 years.

    [ x ] Grunge textures
    [ x ] Tabbed menu
    [ x ] Large photo
    [ x ] Brown

    Disappointing.

  • @scottcorgan, May 20, 2010

    Fantastic website list! I was pretty bummed when I couldn’t find any church websites with decent effort. But, you found them and they look amazing. Where did you find them?

  • Colin, May 20, 2010

    Agree with Jason above. Disappointing list in my opinion. I’d like to see where things are going (particularly away from a lot of texture and large images – since Google is now penalizing for those things as it eats up speed).

  • Wow nice.. I wish I know some designing and CSS skills..might be a good time to overhaul my church’s website :(

  • BG, May 21, 2010

    Nice collection. To get a real appreciation for how this genre has really advanced, you need to click into some of these to find oversized footers, modal boxes, integration of social media, and much more intuitive design, especially with the use of Flash.

  • Ivana, May 21, 2010

    Thanks a lot, a great collection of church sites and non-profit organizations. Very hard to find such.

  • Dragon, May 21, 2010

    What? Take a closer look. These are awesome! Thanks for the inspiration Vandelay. Keep ‘um comin’ .

  • Scott Foley, May 21, 2010

    I think Jason is right. Time to get off the grunge bandwagon. It was cool in the beginning but now…it has become too much of a staple for church websites.

  • Vandelay Website Design, May 21, 2010

    Jason,
    Grunge textures are definitely common. I think that is mostly because of churches that are looking to appeal to young adults. Large photos could be said of websites in just about any industry though, and there are plenty of examples that don’t use tabbed navigation.

  • DRoss, May 22, 2010

    I came here and searched google a few days ago for jewelry type inspirational websites. Nobody has a list. Hint hint.

  • sohbet, May 24, 2010

    That’s really useful

  • Clinton Gao, May 24, 2010

    My favorite is Discovery Church. I agree that you should work on the redesign, mostly I see the same Church websites for a long time.

  • Scranton Web Design, May 25, 2010

    Wow! I would like to know the size of the background image. Within what size parameters do you like to be?

  • Danny Dyson, May 26, 2010

    Loved Eastpoint Community Church.

    You should check out my church: generation.org

  • Cam, May 26, 2010

    I created this one this year.

    http://www.pec.org.au/

    - no textures
    - no grunge fonts
    - no cheesy stock images

  • Vladimir, May 26, 2010

    Wow!!!
    Great List of Church Website Designs :)

    Very nice and useful website you got here too…

  • Zerimar3, May 28, 2010

    Vandelay, do you know if any of these are wordpress themes or templates that can be used for wordpress and such? Thanks for the list, quite impressive.

    • Vandelay Website Design, May 28, 2010

      Zerimar3,
      My intent was to show custom designs, so I don’t believe any of them are templates or themes that can be used.

  • Zerimar3, May 28, 2010

    Thanks. I figured they were all custom but wanted to double check with you as I’m interested in using a theme for a blog. Nevertheless; great collection!

    • Vandelay Website Design, May 28, 2010

      Zerimar3,
      Check out the church category at http://themeforest.net. They have a nice WP template for churches and I think one or two static HTML/CSS templates that are pretty good as well (and they’re low priced).

  • iddaa, June 1, 2010

    Thanks a lot, a great collection of church sites and non-profit organizations.

  • Jonathan, June 9, 2010

    You should really check out http://www.fbchammond.com. Sleek site utilizing CSS and jQuery.

  • Edwin Arceo, June 22, 2010

    I love this list! Whatever those “design” guys say, these designs are beautiful!

  • vibram, August 5, 2010

    Thanks for sharing .
    I think the design is good…
    but I don’t know which one suitable for me , I work for E-commerce..

  • John, August 6, 2010

    @cam – Now that’s what I’m talkin’ about.
    pec.org.au is fantastic!

  • Matt Haff, August 10, 2010

    Thanks for the post, I’d like to offer up 12Stone.com and see what you think of it, also lifechurch.tv

    How did you come up with a list of greatly designed church websites? I know I’ve tried finding some and it takes me hours just to find a few decent ones.

  • Matt Haff, August 10, 2010

    Also… @Jason Zimdars your comment of them being “brown” isn’t true, only 5/25 of the sites listed have a brown color scheme.

    • Vandelay Website Design, August 10, 2010

      Hi Matt,
      I’m online all day and I come across new sites all the time, so when I see a good one I bookmark it. This collection of church sites probably represents several months of browsing.

  • Paul Chong, August 31, 2012

    Superb and eye catching! Must have required talented skills to design these website especially those who know CSS and coding. Great job, cheers!
