Christ Church is a Victorian church in the centre of Great Malvern in Worcestershire. As well as being a centre for Anglican worship in the town, it is also a community venue and a centre for music and the arts in the town.
The need for a new website was twofold. Firstly, the church had received lottery funding and needed to have a web presence that could promote the support of the Heritage Lottery Fund, something that was a criterion for being awarded the money. Secondly, it needed to have an online events calendar to provide an easy way to promote events online.
The end result makes good use of some beautiful photographs of the church and creates a soaring but welcoming feel that echoes the church building itself. It features calendars for services and events plus news and information on the church and its history.
The website has been built in WordPress which means that it will be easy for members of the church’s committee to update the website with news and details of upcoming events.
As part of the work we were able to introduce the committee to a local filmmaker, Jade Edwards of Your Business Found, who took interactive photographs of the interior that are now available on Google.
