A One Page Site for a New Church

Euan and Romona McCrindle have been living in Berlin for the last ten years, and have been dreaming about making the move to Glasgow, Scotland, to start a church within the Every Nation family of churches. There are so many things on their to-do list what with moving country, settling kids into new schools, and starting the work they feel called to.

One of the things on their list was getting a simple one-page site up and running that could alert people to their work, introduce themselves, and share their dream with potential funders.

Style Guide

Working off a rather moody Glasgow city scene, I pulled out some of the predominant colours like dark navy blue, greys, and corals to form the basis of the colour palette for the site. I paired Open Sans fonts for the body, Headings 2 and 3 with Abraham Regular for a bold Heading 1.

Template + Customisation

I chose the Fairfield template, which has the capacity to host large background images and video. I customised the fonts, backgrounds, and various design aspects. For now, all that was needed was a clean and straightforward introductory site to share an ‘About’ a ‘Meet the Team’ page, and some information about how to get involved along with contact details and social media integration. The thing about building a site with Squarespace is that further down the line you can add other features like a blog, events, even an online shop while keeping your original look and feel. So there’s plenty of room for growth!
