New look for ‘A Church Near You’

The brand new A Church Near You is now live. You can visit the site to see the new design, features and try out the easy-to-use editing experience if you have log in details if you manage your church’s page.

Says Amaris Cole, Digital Content and Communications Manager Communications: “With Christmas just around the corner, we’ve asked editors not only to browse the new site and ensure all their details are correct, but also spend some time adding their Advent and Christmas services, or updating them with some of the new tags on the site if they have already done so. This year, we’re hoping to help even more people come to church to celebrate this joyful time of year, particularly as part of the #GodWithUs campaign.”

Editors have been asked to browse the new site and ensure all their details are correct, but also to spend some time adding their Advent and Christmas services, or updating them with some of the new tags on the site if they have already done so. The Church of England communications team shared a survey with all A Church Near You authors and DCs earlier and nearly 2,000 people responded. This formed the basis of the strategy for redeveloping the site in a short space of time.

An updated the FAQ page to help editors get to grips with the new site, and learn how to edit things like service times and events is available to help with instructions. If you experience any problems with the new site please email A Church Near You directly.

In the New Year, the team will be continuing to develop A Church Near You with the aim of seeking to save editors time and to improve the experience of the thousands of people who are searching for a Church of England church. All of these developments will be based on the feedback of users.
