St John the Baptist Church website

St John the Baptist Church website

Professional design input, quality photography and customised ‘plug ins’ combined to overwhelm the standard template chosen for the website of St John the Baptist Anglican Church at Bulimba.  Despite using a themed website and working within a modest budget, the Church has successfully created a new web presence that is as distinctive and unique as the church itself.

Historic St John’s Church is a popular inner-city venue for weddings and baptisms; and the opening a year ago of a new contemporary-designed function centre provided an opportunity for the church to expand its facilities to corporate clients. As such, online booking capability was at the top of the Church’s list of website ‘must haves’ together with a modern marketing appeal and easy navigation.

“The brief was for a website that didn’t have a traditional church-look or feel, but one that spoke to the community including people at a corporate level,” explained John Milburn of St John’s Church. “It was also important that the site streamlined booking administration to reduce the behind-the-scenes workload, and allowed all queries to be addressed before we even met with the client. We love the result.”

St John’s website demonstrates the flexibility of themed websites, which have great appeal to businesses and organisations seeking a cost-effective but fully functional website. By selecting a website “theme” from a library, then customising it through the innovative use of design, colour, great images and additional ‘plug ins’ such as e-commerce facilities, you can create a site that is both affordable and individual.

Themed websites can also be upgraded as budget and future needs allow. The next stage of St John’s website is an online diary so website visitors can check the availability of the church and function rooms on a specific date.
