churchuna – a WordPress publishing platform for churches
We have been helping churches harness the power of the WordPress web publishing platform since 2005. In that time this blog and its showcase of chruches using WordPress has grown and evolved, as has WordPress itself.
churchuna builds on this experience to provide an easy and connected platform for churches that is powered by the undisputed champion of CMS, WordPress. While WordPress is reknowned for its ease of use, installing and managing WordPress can still seem a little daunting. With churchuna all the setting up, hosting and keeping everything up to date is done for you, leaving you to get on with the church’s ministry and mission.
Like WordPress.com, churchuna is a hosted service, but with all the plugins and themes hand picked specifically for church applications. So unlike wordpress.com, you can manage events and use themes better suited to church applications. In fact churchuna will allow custom themes to be used too and can design a custom theme for if you require.
churchuna comes packed with all the plugins and features that churches need to run a great web site. WordPress istelf is pretty awesome, but bundled with churchuna are various plugins that make life easier. You can publish events using churchuna’s built in event tool, integrate Google calendar or use the community group event tools. There are tools for inserting forms and media as well as those for incorporating social media features into your site.
One other unique feature of the churchuna platform is it’s community features, allowing churches and Christians to hook up online through public and/or private groups, each with their own forums. The vision is for a more connected place for churches, groups and individual to publish and work together online.
No church should be an island…
Overall, churchuna offers another option to hosting WordPress yourself. It provides a low-cost, managed and connected option for a WordPress Driven church.
It is actually free to join, so you can see for yourself.
