It's coming up to Christmas and we wanted to share with you some useful resources that will help you with your website. These resources include:
- Website templates and styling
- Christmas themed graphics
- Christmas announcement bar
- Digital advent calendar
- Christmas icons in your app
Free website templates
If you hadn't heard already, we decided to price all of our templates to £0, and also to waive the £95 styling fee. This way any church can get a new website design for £0 up front. This is a key strategy in our mission to help all churches get a great website no matter their circumstances.
Do take a look at our templates, including some new ones we recently launched. We also added sermon and calendar feeds to the homepages of our existing templates.

If you would like to discuss this or go ahead with a new template, please get in touch with our support team.
We have created some Christmas images that you can add to your website slideshows and web pages. These graphics are free, but if you want a custom designed graphic please let us know and we an create one for just £45.
If you need any help with managing images on your site please take a look at the videos:

Christmas announcement bar
Remember our Covid Banner? We have repurposed this to be used to announce your Christmas activities. You can take a look at our demo church website The Town Church to see it, just under the main slideshow.
We've chosen a red background image, to make it nice and 'Christmassy', and put the icon in white.
We can add this for you, with your chosen icon for free, just fill in the form here to specify the icon you want to use, what you want the text to say, and the page you want to link to in your site - this needs to link to a published page.
Here are the icons, and a preview of our default banner...
If you would like a bespoke design and different icon we can do that on a site by site basis, there will be a charge of £45 for this. Please get in touch if you'd prefer that option.
Christmas icons in your app
You can also use these icons in your app, see this article for more information.
Digital advent calendar
We have been working with a couple of churches to develop a digital advent calendar! Once more, take a look at our live demo on The Town Church which has a few days set up as examples, and there is some more information and a form to request this here.
We can add the advent calendar for you, and all you need to do is line up 1 article a day by setting the correct publish date, and each day a new box will be able to be seen. In the article you can write text, add images, links and embed media from websites like YouTube, or your own media on Hubb.
We can add this to your site for free :)
Here is a little video of how it could look with an embedded YouTube video...

As always, just contact is if you would like any of the above, or have questions :)
