I’ll try to make the case later that people administering and organizing churches should have a Google account. There are many well-known, well-tested tools. More about that later.
But if you need a quick, simple and attractive web site, you might try a little known tool: pages.google.com. Some have used the Google Blogger tool — itself not a bad idea — but others might be a little leery of the blog moniker for a church web site.
Indeed, it is used by two small Unitarian Universalist congregations — the Unitarian Fellowship of Storrs (Conn.) (18 members) and the Billings (Montana) Unitarian Universalist Fellowship (68 members) — Unitarios Universalistas de Espaï¿½a [group defunct, site down] and Vernon Marshall, a Unitarian minister in Britain.
Notably, the first two sites are cloaked or forwarded by their own domain names, respectively, http://www.ufs-ct.org/ and http://www.uubillings.org/.
Also, did I mention it is free of charge?
Later. Also, New Chapel, Denton, Manchester, where Vernon Marshall ministers.
