Whilst working with Rev Deacon Mark Woods on the new website for the Diocese of Arundel and Brighton, we all saw the benefits in creating a facility for individual Catholic Parishes to create and improve their own web presence. We formed a steering group consisting of Priests from four Parishes within the Diocese and held regular meetings to develop the product together.
If you choose Parish Portal Website Builder for your Parish, we’ll help you get up and running in no time. As part of the setup, we will create your new Parish site for you and we will provide basic branding ideas to either match your existing Parish colours or to create a fantastic new look and feel. All you need to do is start adding your site content through our easy to use content management system.
We are here to support you every step of the way.
Parish Portal was purpose built for Catholic Parishes. We developed Parish Portal with the help of representatives of four Parishes from the Diocese of Arundel and Brighton.
Parish Portal Websites are hosted together on a secure platform. This means that your Parish will always have access to the Website without needing to rely on a single volunteer or individual.
Parish Portal Websites share a WordPress theme and use Elementor page builder. As more and more Parishes come aboard, it allows us to invest in new features and updates which benefit all Parish Websites.
The Parish Portal content management system has been carefully chosen to make it easy for administrators to update the website. Ongoing support is available by email or phone.
Parish Portal has been built with a mobile-first approach. As the proportion of users using mobile to access websites increases, your Parish Portal site is designed to offer a good user experience.
Parish Websites are built to be Search Engine friendly, allowing your Parish to be found and to return high in results of key Search Engines including Google.
For the basic package, Parish Portal Website Builder costs from just £50+VAT per month.
