The West of England Baptist Association (WEBA) are the regional association that supports Baptist Churches across the West Country – including the pioneering church community that I’m privileged to be a part of.
I have worked with WEBA before on communications projects and I know that they have a small team of people working really hard across the region.
It was an honour to be invited to work with them on an exciting new community project inspiring and encouraging people in their faith journeys.
I was involved from the very inception of the project, and my experience in Tearfund’s Rhythms community gave me valuable insight that directed the project in its early stages.
The project ultimately became a magazine-style website build, but with some neat visual features and customised landing pages that guide people through the sections of the site.
The project had to keep a community engaged over time. I added related posts functionality to keep people on site, and integrations with social media and Mailchimp’s email marketing software to keep the community engaged and coming back. And I advised on all aspects of user journey and community interaction.
The design was outsourced to the great people at Blue and Yellow design who we know and trust, and who did a great job.
Delivering great value to a relatively small budget, this end-to-end consultancy and web-build project was fun, exciting and a pleasure to be involved in.
The site is being featured at the Spring Harvest festival this week, as I write, where the team have a big stand and will be encouraging people to sign up and join the team on their faith journey.

We wish them every success as they build this community.
