The challenge

Stretton Parish approached us with an existing website that had become large and sprawling.

The challenge was to create a condensed but still comprehensive website that was attractive, easy to navigate and easy to update. It also had to be integrated with ChurchSuite, for all their booking and calendar requirements.

Expertise applied

Strategy and planning – Goal setting – Creative and design – Copywriting –  Photography advice – Sourcing stock photography – ChurchSuite integration – WordPress training and cheat sheets

The solution

Working with the Parish, we agreed goals for the site, a new design and navigation for a dropdown mega menu. Then we set up our tooling to ensure content and wording could be shared and sent across easily.

Website photography was a joint effort. Some photos were taken at events, the team shots were taken by a professional photographer, and we sourced some paid and some free stock photography.

Integration of the ChurchSuite software was one of the final hurdles, to ensure parishioners and visitors could view and book any of the parish services and events.

Since the team was given their WordPress training they’ve been happily able to update many aspects of their new site. For more complex changes, they know they can contact us for support.

"It has been a joy to work with Danielle and Anthony on a new website for our parish. They took the time to get to know us and understand what we were looking for and came up with lots of great suggestions and ideas. We love the new look of the website, and are delighted that it is a really useful tool. We would happily recommend Lodge Digital."
