With Easter quickly approaching, it’s time to make sure that your church website is ready for it.

As your church probably knows, Easter brings a flood of new visitors to your church for the first time, and it’s a great opportunity to reach those who only attend church on holidays. With a properly prepared website, you can encourage visitors to attend your Easter service and make meaningful connections that keep them coming back.

So, let’s discuss the 3 things you MUST have on your website to prepare for Easter:

1. Service Times

First and perhaps most importantly, make sure your service time is available and accurate on the homepage of your website. If your church has recently changed service times or you have a different schedule for Easter, such as adding extra or combining services, now is the time to update that information on your website.

You should also include as much detail about your service times as you can. If Sunday School starts at 9:15 and your worship service starts at 10:30, list those times out separately. You can also list any fellowship time that your church has before or between activities.

2. What to Expect

Easter is a great time to reach those who don’t attend church regularly. One of the best ways to encourage visitors like these to show up is to let them know exactly what they can expect on Sunday morning.

Let them know what your worship style is, what the dress code is, what nursery options you offer, and more. Give them any information that you would want to know if you were visiting a church for the first time.

The more comfortable a visitor is when attending your church for the first time, the more likely they are to come back.

3. Intro to Ministries

The last thing your church wants is for a flood of visitors to show up on Easter morning and then never attend your service again. You want visitors to know that church isn’t just for Easter and Christmas and that you have more to offer than just Sunday services.

We recommend listing out each of your ministries along with a short description so that potential visitors can learn more about your church and get involved. This can be included on your homepage or on a separate ministry page. And don’t forget to include pictures!

If you can encourage a visitor to check out other aspects of your church and help them get involved, they may be more likely to return the next Sunday.
