Church Website Hero offers a done-for-you service that takes all the stress, hassle and guesswork out of building and managing your church website.
We understand that now more than ever, a church needs a website that is the foundation of what they do online. From online devotionals, and watching sermon videos, to connecting with others, online giving, and integrating with your other church software.
There are dozens of cheap, do it yourself services available for websites. The challenge is, you still have to figure out how to use the platform—and that can feel overwhelming. Many churches are restricted by the skills, resources, and capacity of staff and volunteers. Church websites are more complicated than most, and do it yourself sites often can lack the responsive functionality visitors demand.
We believe a church website shouldn’t require so much of your time and focus. And it shouldn’t cause so much stress and frustration.
We have a streamlined process designed to build a modern, beautiful, and effective website for your church.

The Starter Plan is good for churches just starting or need just a single page website. This is often best for churches are have a modest attendance/membership who still need a professional website and want to offer online giving.
The standard plan includes a 10-15 page website with a sermon archive, online giving, events calendar, simple online forms, and blog. This is a great plan for most churches who need a professional website, but not need many of the features the Pro Plan offers.
The pro plan is great for churches who need their website to have live streaming or an online campus. This package includes unlimited pages, events calendar, online giving, small groups directory, sermon notes, podcasts sermon players, and contact/prayer forms.
The custom plan is for church who may have larger attendance/members and/or churches who have needs that required a more customized site than what the pro plan has to offer. Examples are churches who need large sites (lots of content pages), have multiple locations, sell online products, and/or need custom functionality.
