A lot of people have commented favourably on our church website (www.treeoflifechurch.org.uk) and wondered who designed it for us. The answer is that I designed it myself using a few software tools and a few frames that I have access to. It is not a complex site, but it does its job and we have had hundreds of visitors from all over the world.
Now we are realizing that there are a great deal of churches and ministries that require a web presence and would love to set up a website both for their members to check what is going on, and for evangelism purposes. However, they are put off by the cost of several hundreds of pounds if not thousands for a website designer, and also many Christians want their websites designed by a Christian. So, we are offering a website design facility for churches and ministries and missionaries. I have a degree in Applied Computing and know enough about design to ensure the website is functional, and my wife has a degree in Art and will ensure that it looks stylish and attractive.
Our cost will be a flat fee of £149 for a website of up to 10 pages (with a £10 fee for every additional page on top of this) , and then a monthly charge of £10 per month if you want the website updated with new articles and information and dates and times every month. If you want the website updated every week, then a monthly charge of £30 will be in play. If you only want your website updated every three months or six months or a year, then £10 is the charge for every time you want the website altered or additional information added. All you have to do is tell me what information you want on your website and I will place it on the internet for you. I can also place Google Ads on your site to raise revenue and help ensure that your website is easily found in google search. (for up to date pricings see www.mattan.co.uk)
This is not going to be an all-singing all-dancing website – it is going to have the information you need on it in a crisp and clean format that people can read and easily navigate around. If you have your own sitename, then I can work with that, if you want us to register a web address for you (for example mychurch.org.uk or myministry.net) then obviously you will have to pay for that. But these costs are normally very inexpensive – for example treeoflifechurch.org.uk costs us less than £5 per year! I will set that all up for you according to your wishes as part of the design. You will have final veto on anything. I can place audio and video tracks on your website, and a whole host of widgets (visitor counter, online gospel presentations, a Bible verse function among many others)
If you need copy written (such as descriptions of your activities) then we are happy to do that for you as well. I have been a professional proof reader before, worked with a couple of universities checking essays and have written the back of the CD sermons for a major ministry – not to mention have written a book and preach every Sunday – so I know how to craft words.
If this is a facility that your church is looking for and something that you think will help extend your ministry, then please either email me on firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a comment on this post with a contact number or email (posts are private until I read them and veto them, so I can get your number and it won’t ever be public!). I can email you some of the other websites I have designed for other churches and ministries so you can see the finished product.
My background is a mixture of Baptist and Pentecostal, but I have experience with many different denominations and streams within the Body of Christ, and am happy to design a website that reflects your theological and ministerial emphases.
I look forward to hearing from you, and I hope I can help,
