I launched churchwebsite.org.za with the intent of giving churches a free (like WordPress.com) option to have their own website, but with the “benefit” that it would read like a “real” church website. No strange tail-end at the end of their church’s name.
One of the key benefits of using churchwebsite.org.za instead of WordPress.com, is that we allow you to upload MP3 sermons straight off the bat. With WordPress.com, you’d have to purchase a space upgrade before you can upload your MP3’s, starting at $20 per year. In the greater scheme of church budgeting, $20 really isn’t a lot. And yet there are churches out there that simply cannot afford that.
Another key benefit of using churchwebsite.org.za is that we have website templates that WordPress.com don’t have. This may be surprising as we get our templates from WordPress themselves, but just from their self-hosted solution, WordPress.org. Where the templates found on WordPress.com are geared towards blogging in particular, our templates can be used for both blogging and formal websites.
So if you know of anyone that is looking for a website for their church, point them in our direction and we’ll gladly help.
