Faith Community Church of Hopkinton, MA is passionate about guiding people to a deeper relationship with Christ and a greater love for others. The church has become a critical member of it’s community through their outreach programs, and is known for it’s vibrant worship experience.
Mindbrew was chosen by Faith Community Church to design three new sites that would better serve their congregation and larger community. They had outgrown their previous website, felt that their copy was disjointed across the various ministries of the church, and needed a digital solution that could handle constant events, online giving, and heavy usage during peak times.
By organizing existing site analytics with feedback from guests, we designed a landing page that greets all visitors and non-members with an inviting design that informs them about all aspects of the church they had been searching for – but missing – in the old website. It offers a peak into the church and each ministry, and encourages them to get involved in a number of ways. A welcome video was developed featuring pastor Mike Laurence to welcome them into the website in the “What to Expect” page as well.
Beyond the landing page, MY.CHURCH was designed to be the main hub for all resources and needs of the member base. We designed a framework that allowed their team to easily upload sermon videos and notes every week, change banner images for seasonal events, keep an extensive events calendar up to date, organize materials for small groups, give online, and much more. We strived to connect all aspects of the site in a way that was simple and obvious to use – even though the site reaches well over 200 unique pages.
Throughout frequent meetings with the FCCH communications team, Mindbrew helped implement web standards and best practices that would guide the church after launch. This has brought greater continuity to the content they use on their website, social media, and printed resources.
We are so excited about the work that was done at Faith Community, and we hope that it continues to benefit the community around the church for years to come.
“Our organization partnered with Mindbrew for design and development of two websites. Our experience was great. Professional, easy process, excellent communications, and creative, vibrant, and effective websites as a result. We plan to continue our relationship with Mindbrew for support in keeping our websites fresh and inviting, and direction for SEO.”
