We are offering local Churches Together groups a free website and hosting, based around an easy-to-use Content Management System (CMS), linked to our social networking website Churches Together Connect .
A number of features help to keep website content fresh and up-to-date: the website automatically takes news feeds from CTBI and your national Churches Together organisation1; and 'plug-in' content allows local groups to quickly add details and direct links to resources available from CTBI, such as for the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity.
The website comes with sample content but is customisable to enable local groups to add and edit their own sections and pages as required, as well as upload photos and add videos. A banner and logo, plus a number of themes, are provided, but local groups are free to upload their own.
A sample website can be viewed here
We are also creating a step-by-step guide to using the system.
If you are interested in a free Churches Together website, please email CTBI
We hope in the future to also provide an automated news feed from the Irish Council of Churches (ICC) .
