Christ Church is a church for the city located in the East Bay of the San Francisco Bay Area. They are a worshipping community that seeks to announce and embody the story of Jesus that brings about changed lives, social healing, and cultural renewal in Berkeley and Oakland, and through these, the world. Christ Church needed an informative site that would be useful to people that attend the church as well as people that were curious about what was going on. They also desired to make updates themselves via a CMS.
We created a clean site, that is very useful, usable and deep, thanks to the Content Mangment System by WebEngine
. It was important that the content be extremely readable and clear, and that bells and whistles were used only to compliment the different pages. The site dynamically pulls in multiple header images in the sections they are attached to, and an unending amount of right bars that can be created and strategically placed throughout the site.
The most incredible aspect is integration of Google Calendar feeds as well as the resource section with handles hundreds of uploads of mp3s, PDF, and quotes. The site also has an RSS feed going straight into iTunes, dynamic blog features and syndicated content.
