Although the church was a large one it only had a small website which was seldom updated, which contained only a fraction of what went on and was mostly out of date. There was no interactivity. In short it was not fit for purpose.
- Scoping the needs and ethos of the website.
- Establishing effective lines of communication and authority.

The site serves a community of over 400 with varying technical ability. In the first year after launch it had over 38,000 unique views. As well as disseminating information of events and activities it provides resources for the wider community and also provides a back office to assist with the admin of the church.
