Some right-headed thoughts about church website design


I quite like the idea of collapsing:

  • the 'About' page into 'New Here' and
  • the 'Ministries' page into 'What's On'.
I'm not so sure about renaming 'Services' to 'Sundays', I don't think the ambiguity is that extreme, as we are still used to the different meaning of 'services' in a religious context - 'memorial service' and so on. I also don't like the emphasis on the one day of the week that 'Sundays' gives. I'd probably just go for 'When and Where' or something like that.

Finally, does 'Contact Us' need to be a primary link in quite this way? Can't it live as a footer to the web page?
